First of all, you can't hear if the guitar is tuned 1/2 a step down. This song is in F. So would it sound more Pinkerton-esque to you if they played it in F# on 1/2 step tuned down guitars? No, cause it's exactly the same.
And second, no, I don't think it has a Pinkerton vibe to it other than that it's sad. It lacks the musical playfulness and lyrical depth. To me, it has the same vibe as every other Green era track. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing.
No, not pinkerton. This has a green vibe all over it. The Solo just matches the melody. That alone = green
