Though in the studio version it's played slightly off G sharp, when performing live, it looks to me like Dan plays this in the key of G with the A string tuned down to G. I'm not sure what he has the 1st and 6th strings tuned to, but I think it's the same tuning he uses in "Busted" if that helps...

E|---------------------------------------
B|-3---1-------------1-3-----------------
G|---------3-0---0-3-----3---------------
D|-------------3-----------------0-------
G|-0---0---------------------0-3---------
E|---------------------------------------

something like that...

I saw them in Dallas. They played this so good live. Dan and Pat were flailing around. Goddamn!

I agree with stonefree86, on the DVD you can hear him tune down the A string to G and I'm pretty sure that's all he
tunes down. And, yes, he plays Busted then Stack Shot in this tuning. The CD has a different tuning.

It sounds good if you play it down 2 frets i.e

e------------------
B-3-------------3--
G--5-3------3-5--3-
D------5-3-5-------
A------------------
E------------------

great stuff.. I don't like tuning my guitar different from the normal tuning.

somestuff you can add to make it sound cooler is hammer the first 5 from 3.

so
E|-----
B|-3h5-

Yes the way he plays the song is actually in open G tuning, not standard. On the studio version it's 1/2 step higher in G sharp, probably because the guitar was unintentionally tuned that way or something altered the sound in the recording process. (Most of Rubber factory is 1/2 step sharp.)

It's impossible to play the whole song in standard tuning because he plays it with a slide and during the break down there are open barre chord riffs. Technically you could do it without the slide but it won't sound as good
