^ Knights of Cydonia by Muse modulates all the time. Every verse is in another key. And after enough repeats, it comes back to the original key. It doesn't sound like it's modulating because the key...

As fingrpikingood said, you could also just repeat the bad sounding note to make it sound right. Of course end the phrase with a good sounding note.

Learn to play those songs differently then. You don't need to use exactly the same voicings for every chord as in the original song. There are so many ways to play the same chord.

Just learn to play barre chords and you don't need to tune up or down. Or buy a capo - it is cheap (but you still need to be able to play barre chords).

He's playing a funky rhythm, using the E9 chord (0 7 6 7 7 7). You may only want to use the three highest strings (G, B and E).
