You can play anything in E flat tuning in standard, it'll just sound a semitone sharp if you play along with the album. But, if you're really adomant on playing along with an album that's also in E flat, you could play anything off of Nirvana Unplugged album, with the exception of a couple songs that are in drop C#.

Townshend uses a capo quite a bit. There is at least a possibility the song is done in, "cowboy C", (C, F, & G), with a capo on 3rd fret. Have you tried that?

Acoustic Rocket Queen' or Bad Obsession by Guns N' Roses? One In A Million by Guns N' Roses is one of the only songs I know how to sing and play at the time time; like One In a Million, Dead Horse, November Rain and Reckless Life I can sing, play, a bit, I guess. One In a Million, signing that one (of all the songs I had to know how to sing/play on guitar right), with vocal/voice projection (which is all handy if you want to be heard in the back row)... So you have to shout it basically in key or whatever... Loud!... Playing singing One In a Million is both a fun and liberating experience.

No I have not but I might try it my good sir, however I find it sounds much better in Eb but, I might be wrong.

It's not a question of either of us being right or wrong. There also exists the possibility there's an overdubbed guitar part on the album. So, guitar 1 Eb tuning, Guitar 2, capo on 3, play in C.

My ear is only so-so. I had much better luck picking "Tommy" off the > vinyl LP< (!), than "Quadrophenia".

At one point in their stage act, Townshend took to playing Les Pauls with number stickers on them. Ostensibly, these had capos on different frets. IIRC, Pete said he had guitars at the ready with capos in , (at least on the 3rd & 5th, and possibly the 1st fret as well).

Not really, It's more of an Eb song isn't it, but I'm pretty sure he uses that tuning, but "Love reign O'er me" Is in Eb

AC/DC used quite a bit of Eb, I know "Highway to hell" is in Eb and a few others.

He may have used a overdub with a capo in "Reign O'er me" as well as a guitar in E flat.

Why not taking a song that's recorded in E standard and playing it in Eb like anyone else looking to play in Eb?
Recommendations: Slash ft. Andrew Stockdale - By The Sword, no reason to not play this in Eb.

First, when you're used to being tuned to E-e standard, Eb is darker. Particularly if you drop an Em song to Eb minor. The 6th string bass root is a touch lower.

All of that notwithstanding, in the music "industry" in general, key changes are normally simply to accommodate vocalist's ranges, nothing more.

This is particularly evident in worship music. The music in your hymnal, defines a baritone's range as ending on or about D4. But...., "I'm a lyric baritone".
you say. The book says, "tough shit, skip all the grandstanding and sing it with the rest of us".

A classic example of this, (at least to me), is "Hark the Herald Angels Sing". As a song for "easy guitar", it works great in G. But the chorus at the "IV" chord, (C major), places the melody note on E4. So, the church feels this is a touch high for the average, "just walked in off the street amateur baritone", and writes the song in either E or F major.

Then the teeny bopper metal heads want to be "brootal", and tune down even further. With them, you might get "Hark", in drop C#.

OK, with all that said, this is indeed, a silly topic. Also one which is at least 6 years old. We sholdn't even be posting to it, but what the hell, we don't have anything better to do. (Or even if we did, this is a good way of postponing it).

Basket Case, Welcome to Paradise, and When I Come Around by Green Day are all in eb tuning (all though When I Come Around doesnt use any open strings, so you can play it in standard anyway). Also Say It Aint So by Weezer
#38
Battery, by Metallica. It's not recorded in Eb, but I think it just sounds better that way.
#39
Saxon, Van Halen, Dokken, Dio-era Sabbath, late-Bon Scott AC/DC, etc.

Lots of bands tuned to Eb during the late-70s/early-80s "transitional" period in hard rock/metal.
