I think they have a standard tuning... It's hard to tell! I heard half step down so maybe E flat instead of E ?

YouTube actually distorts the tuning of a song. It is definitely not the best tool for ear training. A part of their licensing requires that songs are tuned down or up an eighth to a quarter step(they do this automatically). I don't know why, but compare every song you like that isn't an original video posted by a band or musician and you will see that I am right.

I am with Alex on this one. I am pretty certain it is actually in standard.

I didnt know that! Damn. Good to know at least.

cheers guys, I'll get a non youtube version of that song and try to learn it from that instead.
