you tune half a step down, so instead of E being E its E flat or D sharp however you want to look at it. so just do that for every string

if you want to play that song.. just move everything to the left 1 fret.. and it sounds pretty close to the same

simple:

take your guitar, hit the 4th fret of the low e string, and tune your a string to that. your a string should now be a G# or Ab. hit the 5th fret on your low e string and tune the E string accordingly...

the rest is easy. tune every string after Ab to the 4th fret like you're tuning it regularly

tune every string down a halfstep.

what i do is tune the low E string so that the sixth fret sounds exactly the same as the A string, then tune normally from there

It isn't close to the same. It is the same, pitch-wise. If you know how to tune by ear, tune your sixth fret on the Low E string to the A string. That'll get you your Eb. Then you tune your A according to the fifth fret on the E. Then you tune your D to the fifth fret on your A, the G on the fifth fret of the D, the B to the fourth fret on your G, and finally, the E to the fifth fret on your B. You'll end up in an approximate Eb tuning. It won't be perfect, but it'll work.
