Again, thanks to all for the encouragment of using alt tunings.
So tonight at work, I've been practicing the song and I love it, still got a ways to go to get the right strumming, but having a great time.
Which lead me to the question of soloing. I am guessing (because it doesn't sound right, when I play), that I can throw out the thought of using any pentatonic scales, with alt tuning.
So I tried looking for something on the internet and I found this:

It might prove useful for the more advanced guitarist (or adventursome), but it's way over my head. But still I downloaded it for future reference.
By the way, when I googled "open c# tuning scales", number four on the list is an article by David Hodge from 1999 on this site.
