Tune all strings down a semitone.
Use a very short echo and some reverb.

 THE H ABOVE THE LAST STANZA OF THE SONG MEANS TO HAMMER-ON. THE SLASHES 
BETWEEN THE ENDING NOTES MEANS A LEGATTO SLIDE (YOU SOUND ONLY THE FIRST 
NOTE WITH THE PICK). HEY DUDES. KNOCK YOURSELVES OUT.

After this it's G Major played on the 3rd fret (barre chord). This is played
about 8 times, and then the other guitar enters.

Hope this helps
