Do you think its bad to learn bend-intensive songs written in eb tuning without tuning down? I figured it would increase endurance.

This is my third day or so of trying to learn the solos in sweet child of mine and my fingers are freakin wore out. Its pissing me off cause I can't progress through the song once while practicing even at 30% of tempo cause the bends are killing me.

I have 10's on my LP right now. I'd rather not switch to 9's cause of the setup it requires.

Have you tried it in Eb? I don't think it'll make much difference - E and Eb have never really seemed too different to me, tension-wise.

Yes. Its a slight bit easier. I find myself bending too sharp in eb sometimes if I'm not careful.

Just work in standard. You'll build up finger strength with practice.

In that case, I recommend practicing it however you plan on playing it in the end - if you're going to be playing it in Eb, practice it in Eb.
