Unknown tuning.

Is somebody here able to tell me what is the guitar tuning here?

I have no clue neither I know how to find out myself. I tried to google it up without success.
Around 4:17 there is a short part where he plays just all open strings if it helps.

..... seems like drop D to me...... could be standard though.... They're close to the same. Figured it out, don't care for it, and no, I'm not tabbing it out, sorry

Well, nobody asked you to care neither to tab anything. I was just asking for tuning which is clearly not drop D, thank you for your arrogant answer.

Well you wanted someone to care enough to do some work for you so I think your response is at least as rude and arrogant.

Lets see if we can start over.

Welcome to Guitar Geek,

The tuning appears to be F C C G C F

So tune the E up a semitone

The A up a step and a half

The D down a step (That makes it the same note as the A string)

The G string stays the same

The B string up a half step

The C string up a half step

Where he plays the 5th fret as a straight barre (probably what prompted Supergrunged to call it drop D and it is very close to a drop D tuning up a half step) was the most help in figuring it out.

Are we good now?

then clearly you know, so why ask? and by what NoFroBro was commenting on the tuning, I myself, wouldn't doubt this could be played in drop D tuning. Ear training is part of playing, so do me a favor and message me when the tabs for the album Skying come out..... Seems you've studied the video enough to make your own!

Also off topic, wouldn't this be posted in a different forum as well???? like Technique & Theory?..... I thought the guitar forum was for talk of guitars, not how to play them, or some band that came out of "frequenting London"s tuning?

NoFroBro: That seems alright good job man. But i tend to think that the "high e" tone is way lower, it doesnt sound that high in the intro neither in the rest of the song and the the string is apparently thicker than a few others above, what do you think it could be?

I'd have to check it out again (Probably not going to happen). If you can tell when something is wrong you can almost certainly tell when it is right too. Doing it yourself is always a good option.
