This riff uses the opportunity to play tight palm muted octaves, which isn't really possible in standard tuning (other than E, A, D). In standard tuning you have to skip a string and you don't really get the same kind of sound.

To tune to CADGBE, you can use the Reference Tuner and manually change the the low E to a C.
