hi,

ive been playing in E flat instead of standard and was wondering do all the notes change, for example if a play the G power chord on the 3rd fret in standard will this change 2 G# in e flat tuning, so instead of the G power chord been in the key of G it will be in the key of G#, if you understand what i mean

The notes change: you're not magically sounding lower without playing lower notes. However, it would F# on the 3rd fret.

so if i used the 3rd fret as the key in E flat would i use the F# penatonic scale
If you meant b (flat) instead of # (sharp) then you're right.
G# in E flat would be 5th fret. (or the A string)
This formula might help:

number of fret on standard guitar
= number of fret on YOUR guitar - steps of downtuning

Example:

4 = 5 - 1
---> So playing the 5th fret on YOUR E-string would be like playing the 4th fret on a standard guitar (G# or Ab)

Yes all the notes change and standard tuned notes are now a half step higher.

so i do i change the scale then, as the notes will be in diffrent key

The shape of the scale is the same, since each string is tuned down the same amount.
