This acoustic version is taken off the Solo Trans video. It uses the "Dropped D" tuning, though it can be played in standard tuning easily enough if you use conventional chord shapes, as the main riff doesn't really use the 1st or 6th strings Actually, the D5 is a chord without 3rd and in some songbooks called "D(no 3rd)". But D5 is shorter. :-). In the original TAB from Malc it was called Dm because this would be the chord to play in standard tuning.
