every string a full step down.

it's a good song with a nice melody, but i'm afraid it would be too inconvenient.

it's alternative rock, and i'm a baritone.

should i just rewrite the lyrics and melody in the same key to be in my range? or should i transpose?
You could try and transfer it an octave down so it has the same feel and it's in the same mode, but you might have problems if the instruments are playing higher notes than your melody contains after you transpose; the intervals would change and you might have parrallel fifths and other bad stuff.

Changing keys would probably be easier, IMO.

This isn't the right place to ask this. It would be better suited in the Techniques sub-forum. Please read the rules of this forum. Thanks.
