Hey guys,

I was wondering. If I were to tune my guitar a half step down and then put a capo on the first fret, would that put me back in standard? I was wondering this since lately I've been wanting to play a lot of half step down songs on the acoustic, but I'm kinda lazy and hate retuning every couple of songs.

Of course it would. Think about what you're doing.

1 fret = half step.

Guitar de-tuned 1/2 step = Eb Standard
Capo on the first fret raises 1/2 step = E standard
why wouldn't u just play the down-tuned songs in standard, or the other way around?
