An interesting way to get lots of open strings ringing on an acoustic guitar
and still maintain that bass progression. The chords can either be strummed or picked.
From Verse 3 onwards, if you have another guitarist the riff on the G5 could be added.

  
TUNING: D-A-D-A-A-D

Tune bottom E string down to D
Tune G string up to A (Take care tuning up,old strings might not take it too well)
Tune B string down to A
Tune top E string down to D

A chromatic tuner can be helpful to check the notes.

PLEASE IGNORE ANY POP-UP CHORD BOXES that the website might suggest,
and use the chord shapes shown below: 

D5    = 050000
Asus4 = x02000
Bm7   = x24000
Gsus2 = 555000

G5 = x x x 10 10 12


If, like me, you find the original key is still too high to sing the very
high notes, drop the tuning down another whole tone to C-G-C-G-G-C. The chord
shapes are exactly the same, but will sound as C5 - Gsus4 - Am7 - Fsus2,
and as an F5 for that high riff chord.
You will need to take more care not to play too heavily, particularly on the
bottom string, as they are a lot slacker, and it may need a bit more fine tuning
more often to keep all the strings in pitch.
N.B. I wouldn't recommend this tuning if you're using very light gauge strings.
