TUNING: D-A-D-G-B-E  (Dropped D)
Tune bottom E string down to D

CAPO: 2nd fret (Sounds in the key of E)

N.B. 
For the bass note riff, if you have a whammy bar fitted you can
just play the bottom string and dip the bar for that half-step down,
the tab shown is a simulation of that effect if you don't have one.

might automatically suggest and use the typed shapes
shown below:

G5 * = xx0033 or 550033    G6 = 575xxx
A7   = x02020 

h = hammer-on    ^ = Emphasise the beats  N.C. = No chords
