Sounds like open G. Tune to the video and you might get lucky.

It's in E, standard tuning I think. It sounds like a rework of a standard rhythm lick on the intro, partial open E on G and B strings, partial open A on same strings, open G and B strings and hammer on the third (G string first fret) then the D string second fret. Opens with 1st string 4th fret 2nd string 5th fret to open strings. I think! I've only tried the intro for a few mins, it may be open E and I'm wrong about the hammer on from the b3 to 3.
