Hey guys , Iv been learning all the positions of an A Minor Scale lately and iv been on All Guitar Chords that gives you a full guitar neck with all notes in that scale in its different positions all over the board

Thats the one

The problem is , I play in Eb and iv been learning it like that

So im wondering because im in Eb wont it mean all the notes will be different ( Like a step up )

if your learning the A minor positions on a guitar tuned to Eb, everything will be half a step down.
Eb is E flat. (down)
E# is E sharp. (up)

it depends, are you trying to play in A natural minor?
or are you playing the shapes of A natural minor on the guitar tuned to Eb? (which would be Ab natural minor).

yes
all the scales and positions of A natural minor on guitar tuned to E standard are exactly the same as all the scales and positions of Ab natural minor on a guitar tuned to Eb standard.

If you are playing A minor shapes on a guitar tuned to Eb then you will play the same shapes but actually be playing an Ab minor scale.

If you actually want to play the A minor scale on a guitar tuned to Eb then you will need to move all the notes up one fret (e.g. 9th fret becomes 10th fret)

If your tuned to Eb, and the rest of the band is in standard, then yes you would have to shift up a half step. if your all tuned down, then it won't matter.
