i keep my guitar in low C.  to convert to standard tuning, subtract 4 from the bottom 
numbers (the C line), subtract 2 from the low G line, and move the 7-6-'s up a string.  
446XXX is an Emaj, so play 0221XX instead.

intro bit:

i think the reason you're getting so few stars is because of your odd tuning (no offense, it just is haha). Otherwise, this is a great tab, chords spot on and the riff is better than the other one. Nice job and thanks!!
