In the sort of 'break down' section of the song where she ad libs, the guitarist plays a percussive beat on his guitar body. He strums open strings then lays down his beat. Now if you were in standard tuning, you would risk hitting unwanted strings that are off key(low E string). Remembering your in the key of D major. That was quite long winded, hopefully it makes sense.
