Not too sure why it's in Drop D, because you'll need to make a much greater effort playing in in Drop D to move between the frets than if you used Standard tuning

F5: 133xxx
Bb5: x133xx
Ab5: 466xxx
C#5: x466xx

I love this song though, and I think this is accurate, I'm just voicing my opinion :)

For a lil' old noob over here, this looks simple enought, but... DADGBE tuning? Is that a typo or what it's meant to be?
Dunno if that's a stupid question or not
