Complex of way of understanding the tuning:
string 1. C#
string 2. G#
string 3. E
string 4. B
string 5. F#
string 6. B

More simply, from standard tuning, Drop the sixth string to D and then drop 
all strings down 1 1/2 steps. this gives you drop d tuning in the absolute 
pitch of B.

If you don’t want to tune down to B, that’s fine. If you just drop your 
sixth string down to D, you’ll just be in dropped D tuning in the pitch of E, 
instead of the pitch of B.

Into riff: 2x (slight dirty with high treble dist. strum pick on the bridge 
or over the treble (rear) pickup to get the scratchy strumming sounds.)

your pick in order to achieve the "bwah" sound)
