Okay so at the beginning of this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3w9oFbNX1U
the guitarist seems like he is playing open chords up and down the neck. I cant figure out how. Could someone explain what he is doing? like, are they open(if so how do they sound so good? haha), barre? any help would be great! thanks
He is playing in kind of a strange tuning. But it works.
The strings from 1-6 are:
D# -1
C#- 6

I think you can see the fingering he is using on the video.
Give it a shot. Not giving you a 100% guarantee.
