Tuning: Drop C# (C#,G#,C#,F#,A#,D#)

Riff 1

I know those chords look funky, but I'm 100% sure based on a live video that
that is how Shaun plays it. You can omit those notes on the low C# string
if you want and it'll still sound relatively close, just won't sound as
heavy as it does on the record.

Play Riff 1 x2
