I've not tried it yet, but why the half step down tuning? Of course that doesn't make it wrong, just curious.

Oh yeah the reason was because I tabbed the bass version too (which has been rejected ¬_¬ ) the bass hits a low Eb so I just assumed the guitar would be in that tuning to keep everything more organised

because the song is in eb major.
