Ry Cooder tuning in this vid

Can someone tell me what tuning Ry Cooder is in for this vid with John Lee Hooker?

I'm guessing Open D with capo on 2nd to put him in Open E but I'm new so it is strictly a guess.

I'm thinking it is Key of E as well.

Thanks in advance,

Well, the big clue is Hooker--he plays in E quite bit-- 8)

If it ain't in E--you deserve to suffer :wink:
