BP on Kevin's Guitar Tuning

In case you missed it, BP had a really interesting comment about Kevin's tunings at the Townhall. A new townhaller asked about the tuning for "Please Tell Me So" on Bedside Drama, and BP responded:

"yeah... for cherry peel and beside drama and maybe parts of
the bird who ate, the guitar is not tuned to a tuner. kevin liked
it about a 1/4 step down from standard tuning. kevin only relented
towards standard tuning when keys started to be added to the mix.
kevin hardly ever uses standard chords. so find the root note and
pick around it to find the chord. if it seems too insane in one place,
move it to another place on the fretboard.

try figuring out 'little viola'.
