Tunning. I play this version a step down, although i think nile use A tuning.
It isn't at 100% but its close, the song is also played using pitch control
or vibe effect.

If playing with one guitar, just play guitar 2's riffs on guitar 1, by playing
the 2 strings instead of 1.  This is important because allot of the riffs in
this song won't sound right unless accompanied by another guitar or played
on 2 strings, including the effects. .
