It's the same principle: down tuning a guitar. Thus, it's relevant to some degree.
eddytanh you really make no sense to me
i dont like the way you write
and how it tends
I would also like to say that the reason why I down tune
for instance, from E standard to B standard,
is because I prefer the timbre of
the lower notes.
If you don't
then you should go
listen to some more
It's very easy to play an E in Eb tuning. Just move it up a fret. If you don't understand that, it's you who needs to study. There's a lot more to guitar than just open chords. Basically anywhere you can play an F chord in standard E tuning will be an E chord in Eb tuning.
P.s. I have studied Drop D tuning, but that's completely irrelevant to our argument.
You're either an idiot or you simply can't put your point across eloquently enough for us to understand. Which by default makes you an idiot.
You're an idiot.
As for the Drop D tuning, that has no relevance here.
EDIT: I think I know what you're trying to say, but if the original song is in E, why not tune your guitar to suit it or transpose the song to suit your tuning?
You're still not making any sense at all. The tuning of the guitar doesn't affect the vocals. If a song is written in Eb Major, all the notes of the guitarist, vocalist, bassist, etc. will more or less fit into the Eb Major scale. It doesn't matter if the guitars are in Eb standard, Drop C, Open D, etc. Just because you tune down a guitar doesn't mean the vocals have to be lower in pitch. You could tune it down to Eb standard and sing it an octave higher. Changing a guitars tuning =/= changing the singing pitch.
If the song is sang in a lower pitch than it should be (which all depends on your opinion when you think about it) then it's up to the singer to sing it in the right pitch.
You do know that people can sing at different pitches, right? And this is a guitar forum, not vocals.
Guitar tuning has basically nothing to do with vocals. A lower tuning can imply a lower vocal tone, but what notes are actually sung has nothing to do with guitar.
On pitch with what? An E-tuned guitar? Of course not it'll be on pitch with an Eb-tuned guitar. The relativity between the vocals and the guitar does not change.
This thread is getting out of control. TS's question has been answered, and now we are getting acid-hippy poetry describing why Eb tuning sounds bad...
the nice piano playing is disrupted by the tapping noise...uh, uh, wut?
