Title: Crawling in the dark

  Okay,so your guitar is actually supposed to be tuned
  to an open E for this song. Well if you are like me,
  you don't really wanna mess with such a weird
  tuning just to play one song, so I listened to the 
  song and wondered why they bothered to tune weird
  when it's just as easy to play it like this:

[Intro]
with phaser?(I think)and delay
