when a guitar is tuned its not really in a key its just allows you to get different notes lower or higher pitch in different positions for example if your in drop D tuning you can get a low D on the " E" strings, a note which you wouldnt be able to get on standard tuning. Thats the way i know it but i may be wrong.

ok to make it simpler. standard tuning EADGBE, half step down is EbAbDbGbBbEb that means that you can play notes that are one half step lower. In standard tuning you cannot play an Eb that low. its kinda hard to explain without a diagram.

Well let me explain. I want to learn to play songs on my guitar and harmonica but I want the harmonica to be in a simular key as the guitar so they would sound simular... so it is really more of a harmonica question than a guitar question I suppose

The guitar isn't really in a key, however any music you play will be.

I think that generally speaking instruments that are "in a key" have a single octave of notes.

you can play in any tuning you should learn your circle of fifths if your harmonica in the key of C you should play on the guitars notes that are in the key of C. CDEFGABC.
key of G is GABCDEF#G and so on. go to the theory thread and look it up.

But what would like to know what the key is for standard tuning, I realize that it can be changed but is there a specific key for standard?
#11
the guitar isnt in key, your song is in key...so if you get a harmonica in E major, you play the notes in E major, and if you want to get A major you cannot do anything to the guitar to do it, you would need a harmonica in A major...

It's not in a key.

Something like a harmonica is in a key, because it only contains specific notes...a guitar can play any note you want equally well.
