They both seem to be played in standard tuning.

You are referring to Tritones and the Deminished 5th. I know black sabbath used them in one of their songs.

I've never heard of him using a "Devil tuning." I think that you're thinking of the tritone, the so-called "Devil's note," which is the diminished fifth/augmented fourth interval. It's very common in blue's music. That note is actually what separates the minor pentatonic scale from the blue's scale.

Metalheads are the worst thing that ever happened to metal.

What the hell do you mean "all that crap".

That's what the devil's notes are, the diminished 5th's. And that linked sucked. Some old dude playing crappy music.
