Right, I think I have got the hang of Eb flat tuning but one thing is bothering me - the bass strings. My question is that if I think I have tuned it down can I grab my electronic tuner and hold down 1st fret on the low E (now Eb) and if this a bang on E is the open in Eb ?

Sorry if this is kinda confusing.
Well, in theory, yes, but it would require your guitar to have been perfectly intonated first.

Amps: ENGL E530, Bugera 6262-212,
FX: TC Electronics G-major 2, Behringer EQ700, Morley Volume / Wah
If you're guitar is well intonated, yes.

Also, "Eb flat" is redundant. It's just Eb.

So what? I wasted like 5 minutes watching DaddyTwoFoot's avatar.

Metalheads are the worst thing that ever happened to metal.
Technically speaking, no, it won't be perfectly at E. The reason for this is that there are all sorts of intonation difficulties regarding the first fret.

If you had the 0 fret system that are on some high-end guitars, however, then yes, you could.

You're right, that is weird. You win.
Well, if the tuner is chromatic, you wont have to worry about that, but if its a dedicated guitar tuner, than you would have to make sure that your intonation is correct. I would say that choosing a tuning is not something to change a sound, but something to help correct a sound IE, if youre in a band with brass instruments or with others in Eb, tune to Eb. Honestly, the only difference when playing solo is the feel, as pitch is relative.

yes only if its perfectly intonated and the first fret is kinda notorious for being slightly sharp or flat
Eb flat is like saying Eflat flat or D
the b means flat next time just say Eb

Sorry I was in a rush, also would I be able to upload a sound clip of what my guitar sounds like in Eb tuning?
