Yes. And you can transcribe almost anything from the 0th fret to the next (thicker string) unless it is a low E string 0 fret.

I´ll explain in Standard, goes same in flat.

e B G D A E are the strings (little ´e´ being the high ´e´ string).

5th fret of the B string gives you the open ´e´ string tone.
4th fret of the G string gives you the open B string tone. < Different from others.
5th fret of the D string gives you the open G string tone.
5th fret of the A string gives you the open D string tone.
5th fret of the E string gives you the open A string tone.

Of course you can. Unless you're talking about using the low Eb as a note, and even then you can shift it one octave up.

I transposed Sweet Child to standard, but didn't particularly like it because of the emphasis on the Db chord before the solo and because I didn't bother to figure out how to play it in standard.

Why cant you just play it in e flat like you're supposed too?

Why should I retune every time I want to practice a song in e flat? Why should I reduce the life of my strings?

You know the main riff of sweet child o mine? If you play it in standard tuning, you just shift all the notes 1 fret left right? So for example, the D string, 12th fret, which is a D on the next octave, the first note of sweet child o mine, you would play the D flat (previous fret) instead

He's talking about xx0232, open Db chord. You can hypothetically play it x46654 in standard, or a similar variation, but it won't produce the same tone as playing it as it is on the record, and if you're compromising that you may as well just play the song in the wrong tuning fret-for-fret and shift the audio up a half step in guitarpro/audacity/whatever you're practicing along to, if anything.

Just buy a guitar for every tuning you use.

Or you could do it the really easy way: download audacity and pitch-shift the song up a semitone when you want to practice it.

Here's what i do.. i play the song in standard if i don't feel like de-tuning. Play the notes where they belong, it just sounds a semi-tone higher.

When you memorize the song fully, you don't have to look at your fretboard nearly as much.
So when i play the song with the band, i de-tune and play.. If i practiced it every note a step down then when i play with the band, i'll have to stare at the fretboard again just to make sure i'm not playing it the way i practiced..

I guess what I'm saying is, after practicing so much your hands tend to go where there supposed to. Your going to find yourself automatically playing the way you practiced and having to think the whole song about playing it a 1/2 step higher because your tuned properly now.

Most of the time however, i will practice standard songs together, then take the time to de-tune and practice all my detuned songs.
