Tuning: Double Drop D (DADGBD)



The song is definitely in Drop D. I think it's in Double Drop D. Having a D
on the high string makes the riff easier to play later on when things get
faster. 

I'm certain there is a bass guitar layered on here, (listen closely to the solos) 
which makes some of the verse portions, e.g. 0:19, hard to transcribe. I've spent 
a lot of hours analyzing it, playing it and listening to the song at different 
speeds using software. I've transcribed to the best of my ability, and feel like 
it's spot on. 

As for the solos, e.g. 1:20, I play them on the lower strings. It's sounds better 
and I think it's how it should be. Alternatively, you could play it like this 
so you can play closer to the main riff's location:

d|---------------3---3b------------3/5-3-----------|
B|----1b-3---------3-------3-------------3---1/3---|
G|--2--------------------------------------2-------|

Comment or message any ideas or corrections. Please rate my tab. If you've got
problems with the tab, I'd encourage you to contact me with those problems so I
can fix the tab or provide advice for playing. Don't just screw me on the rating
and not give me any feedback. The idea is for us all to work together to create
a perfect finished product. This tab just represents the best I can do. It's 
definitely up for peer review.



Key:

#h# - hammer
#p# - pull

#r# - release bend from bended note to normal note.

This tab sounds right, but... IMHO the song is originally played in D Standard tuning, because I tried to play it in D Standard tuning and it was much easier and sounded well.
Try out to pick it in D Standard tuning, use the blues scale and licks from the "Heavy Soul" from TBK's "Moan" EP. It's so fun to play this song like this.

I agree completely. It's pretty cumbersome the way I put it. I knew very little about tuning 4 years ago when I first started playing guitar. I just don't come back to these tabs often and never really cared to fix any of them.
