Hey everyone, I couldn't figure this out myself so I thought one of you more experienced players might be able to figure it out, but can anyone figure out what tuning this is in?

It's sweet child of mine by Trace Bundy.

I've been playing for about 5 years, and sometimes use different tunings (play a fair bit of Antoine Dufour) but this has me stumped. It might be something really simple, no idea though... Sounds like D something, then again, I'm not entirely sure. I'm pretty sure it's an open tuning.

A lot of pros do that: if they play a wrong note, they'll hit it again to make it look as if it's intentional. It's called "jazz", aparently.

What, half a step down? That's it?

edit: In my head is doesn't seem like it would be that...if it is I'm an idiot.

I'll try it.

edit 2: No...it's not that.

I'm fairly sure it's open.


edit3: Sounds like a FULL step down. The E string is definitely a D.


edit 4: Fairly certain it is Open D.

He's playing it with harmonics, my guitar is tuned Eb and it sounds the same when I play it. Here, have some tabs I whipped up in GP5.
