The recording was made with an electric guitar tuned a WHOLE STEP DOWN. If you want to play the D chord normally it will just be an octave higher than the recording. These tabs are made for original tuning. If you want the drop tuning, transpose with the button on this site or on your own UP 2. The first chord when transposed for the tuning a whole step down should be an F#m. Please feel free to correct me if anything is wrong.
