Would you class it as cheating
I know theres no cheating in music,but would you say its bad to play all the time in eb?
I used to play in e for ages but eb felt so much easier on the fingers and i found it much easier to play fast and bend strings with any fingers
Is this bad in a way though,cos sure e will feel more difficult when I go back to it.
Opinions?

How would you even think it is it cheating?

Your theory is like saying using lighter strings are cheating...

If you like playing in a half step down tuning, go for it, and don't think its cheating!

What... **** no... I tune Eb for the warmer/deeper/ tone. There is no cheating in music, as it is subjective... your goal as a musician and you guitar is to be able to make the best music u can, and you need to improve playability of you instrument to do that... otherwise... why use a wammy bar? if its cheating to use it instead of your fingers for vibrato? Why have a locking nut? its cheating... you shouldnt be able to stay in tune that good... YOU NEED TO GET THE ****TIEST CRAPPIEST SOUNDING AND PLAYING GUITAR EVER OTHERWISE YOUR CHEATING... that basically what you damn kids sound like... go spend you time somewhere else and stop asking ridiculous questions. its music...

Woah dude! chill I was only asking a question!
All I meant(and I stated this below) was is it bad to stay in that tuning all the time because when I move back up to e,my fingers would have to re-adjust to the pressure needed to bend in tune etc...

same with us XD, if a song is usually in standard tuning, well just play it a semi tone down, no big deal

Are you a woman or something?

There is **** all difference in the string tension between e and e flat with the same string gauge!

And you shouldn't need to 're-adjust' or ask such stupid questions...
