Why is this tune half a step down? It doesn't have to be since you don't use any opens

The beginning bass part is just the 7s and 5s.
A--7777~-----
E-------~5555~

It doesn't do the:
A--666-7~---------
E--------~777~555~
thing.

The Bridge is right, where ever you want to play it on the fretboard.

This using his half-step tuning. And TheClash57 is right. No open notes so it's not REALLY necessary to detune..

Plus when I play it (detuned), I slide up from the E5s to the E12s instead of the A7s. You can hear the bass in the song slide up and down.
