This has quickly become one of my favorite songs, and I can't find any tabs or accurate accounts as to how he plays it. It's far beyond my capabilities to pick it up by ear. If anybody could figure this out for me, I will think of your beautiful soul every time I play it.

I think it's in Drop D if that helps at all.

PS: I know I posted this before. Thank you for your response DON CZARSKI's (in case you are reading this). The standard tuning tutorial was helpful, but doesn't really get into what he's doing in the intro (which is the best part imo) and is a touch bit oversimplified. And I can't read sheet music well enough to put that puzzle together. Thank you very much though, I really do appreciate it.

Thanks for taking a gander at this here desperate plea for a tab.
Update: I think I stumbled onto something. The chord he's using in the intro kind of sounds like this guy:


But something seems to be missing... hmm...
