"Angels Son" Beautiful song.
The tuning is from low to high C#-G#-C#-F#-B-C#
All the parts are here and easy to put in order while playing
to the cd.
Intro
C#--------0------------0-------|------0-------------0----
B---------0------------0-------|------0-------------0----
F#-----5-----5-----5-------5---|---5-----5-------5-----5-
C#-----------------------------|-------------------------
G#--3-----------5--------------|-------------------------
C#-----------------------------|-3-----------5-----------

C#---------0------0-----0-----
B----------0------0-----0-----
F#-----5------5------5------5-
C#---------------------------- (play this bar 2x)
G#----------------------------
C#--6-------------------------

What exactly does he mean?

Hi,

I think the answer to your query is that an alternate tuning is being used.

Instead of using the standard EADgbe (Low to High or thick to thin) the strings have been tuned

E A D g b e
C#-G#-C#-F#-B-C#

In the excerpt you show the notes on the thicker strings could, I think be played in standard tuning, shifting them accordingly (eg fret 4 on g (F#), 0,2,3 on E (C#)) although there may be other problems elsewhere.

The 2 repeating notes B and C# on the thin strings would be next to impossible in standard tuning. Assuming they are being played simultaneously and/or are supposed to ring on.
