I'm having some confusion over the chords for all along the watchtower, what are the chords for it in standard tuning and what key is it in in standard tuning ? (hendrix version)

cm, bflat, a flat, b flat, repeat
it's in c minor

that's in standard tuning. hendrix often played half a step down, but not always. i don't know if he did on watchtower.

The chords don't change when you change tuning, nor does the key change.

well yes and no...

due to the physical limitations of the guitar soem songs require a tuning to play
eg. voodoo child played on a guitar in standard tuning cannot be played in Eb minor like it should but E minor
The original recording is in Cm, however the guitar is tuned to Eb.

So it looks like C#m, but its actually Cm.

The progression is i VII VI, VII repeat. There's probably more to the song but thats what I'm seeing as I have a brief glance at it right now.
You can play it any way you want. As mentioned above, the chords are i VII VI VII repeat. I usually play it in A minor.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.
