Original chords are: E C#m B A
But they have it tabbed as: G Em D C
What do I tune my guitar to instead of standard?
Capo 9 is a bit difficult...
John's is the only answer - if you need to stick to G. I guess for the shape(s).
Other options are available. With capo on fret 4, there's C Am G F.
Capo on fret 2, there's D Bm A G.
Both of which coincidentally contain the 'G shape'. You ask about 'using G shapes', which will be practically impossible in any key - after all, there's a minor shape in there! But I'm sure that's not exactly what you meant. But with the last two options, at least you get to play a 'G shape' chord !
