Drop D Tuning

Main bass riff (repeated throughout song):G--10-10-10-10-9-9-9-9--9--9--9--9--12--12--12--12-|D-0--0--0--0--0-0-0-0-10-10-10-10-10--10--10--10---|A--------------------------------------------------|D--------------------------------------------------|
While the bass is playing in the intro, just let the low D power chordring out. The transition into the verse is this:E-----------------|B-----------------|G-----------------|D-8---8---10---10-|A-8---8----8----8-|D-8---8----8----8-|
In the verse, the bass is emphasized more than the rhythm guitarprogression; the bass plays the main riff and the guitar plays thisprogression, letting each ring out with feedback:E------------|B------------|G------------|D-3--2--2--5-|A-0--0--3--3-|D-0--0--0--0-|
After a few repetitions, play the intro guitar riff x4; then play theverse progression a few more times. The pre-chorus is the intro guitarriff played x2. Here is the chorus:E-------------------------------------------|B-------------------------------------------|G-------------------------------------------|D-7-7-7--0-0-0--10-10-10--0-0-0--1010101010-|A-7-7-7--0-0-0--10-10-10--0-0-0--1010101010-|D-7-7-7--0-0-0--10-10-10--0-0-0--1010101010-|
From here on, it's just the second verse, the intro guitar riff, the final chorus and end on the intro riff. Thatโ€™s it. One of the best songs ever written, in music and lyrics (Thank you Mark, Jeff, Dirk, and Sam :-). Have fun and God bless.
