well look at any weezer song although most of them have solos you just don't play them or choose one that hasn't got one.

just play any standard tuning song,
only people with perfect pitch will be able to tell that its in a different key. as long as you play the same stuff, it will sound normal to both you and the audience

this IS true.

well if you were reading, youd see that i have a floyd that is perfectly setup for half step down. i could use a capo but my friend would have to tune his guitar in between songs. hes too poor to buy anything since he got his hellraiser.

Umm, you coud take this Opportunity to practice tuning it then

..let's see....Bulls on Parade is flippin easy, and its a half step down...just ignore the solo....

that's all I can think of right now...which makes my post pretty useless.....

Actually, the solo isn't that hard.

Basically your scratching your hand on the strings while using a killswitch technique.. but you may find it hard.

play any song in standard tuning but just play it down half a step.

A ton of bands downtune their songs live anyway so nobody will think any less of you.

All Green Day songs from Kerplunk! to Insomniac are in Eb tuning, and they're all pretty damn easy.

No solo? Hmm. Raining blood is a good one.
As is Magua's Scalp, by Buckethead, only if you're really good at tremolo/alternate picking.

Also, most songs in E sound as good, if not better, tuned a half step down. Pick your favorite song and play that.

Even if the song is in standard tuning, you can play it in Eb standard. There is no magical difference between those two tunings, it'll just be like your transposing it a half step down. Then you can tell the guys in the band you're auditioning for: "this song is originally in E minor, but I've chosen to transpose it to Eb minor, and they'll think you are a theory wiz.
