DROPPED D TUNING

(note - I think this song is actually either in dropped C tuning or
 White uses a whammy bar for the fills during the chorus. He only plays
 the low C twice during the entire song though, so I've omitted one
 which isn't really necessary and changed the other to keep it
 dropped D.)
