  Tuning: This song has a strange tuning.It's not standard, but it's not a half step
down.Actually, in order to play this song identically the tuning required might be "one
quarter" step down. It's almost standard, but the original song doesn't fit standard
tuning at all. Anyway, it sounds good using a Standard tuning.
