Drop C# tuning.
Really simple song here.

[0:23-4:34]
D#|--3--2-----|--------|
A#|--------2--|--------|
F#|-----------|--4--7--|
C#|-----------|--------|
G#|-----------|--------|
C#|-----------|--5--9--|

(Repeat a lot. A LOT.
After this is an ambient bit that I
haven't gotten around to figuring out yet.
But I can tell you it's based off of the
part above. So if you've got a good reverb
pedal and a way to do some swells, you can
probably figure this part out.
That's from (4:55-7:07), for you curious folk)

Onwards to part two! Starts at just after

[7:07-8:50]
D#|--------|--------|          |--------|--------|
A#|--------|--------|          |--------|--------|
F#|--2--7--|--2--4--|          |--2--7--|--6--4--|
C#|--------|--------| x3, then |--------|--------|
G#|--------|--------|          |--------|--------|
C#|--4--9--|--4--5--|          |--4--9--|--7--5--|
Play that whole part 3x, then it goes into:

[8:52-10:35]
I haven't sat downfigured this part out yet.
Sorry.

[10:43-end]
(Part two again from above.
The only difference here is that after you play
the first part 3 times and go to the last part,
you play this instead)
D#|--------|--------|
A#|--------|--------|
F#|--2--7--|-----6--|
C#|--------|--------|
G#|--------|--------|
C#|--4--9--|-----7--|

The second part has a rest, then you play the
notes. Listen to the song for the timing.

And that's the song! If you have any additions,
just drop them in a comment.

If you listen closely, you can hear another note being played with the beginning! Here's what I got. I think it sounds pretty accurate:

D#|--3--2-----|--------|
A#|--------2--|--------|
F#|--4--2-----|--4--7--|
C#|--------2--|--------|
G#|-----------|--5--9--|
C#|-----------|--------|

Found out that it is way easier to play the first 3 chords like this:
D#|-----------|
A#|-----------|
F#|--11-10-6--|
C#|-----------|
G#|--14-11-7--|
C#|-----------|

Not only does your hand stay in the same position but you get more of the low-end tone that is in the song. Also, I believe this is how it is played live, a la: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhY0HpnE0kg

HOWEVER, Disclaimer: this is only really the second song I've learned on guitar... So, grain of salt.

EDIT: 3 months later, I am thinking it is actually:
D#|-----------|
A#|-----------|
F#|--11-10-6--|
C#|-----------|
G#|--13-11-7--|
C#|-----------|

Sounds nicer, keeps hands in the same position.

Why is this drop C# tuning? can't you just use drop D and play everything up one fret?
