because that's what I've been finding over the last 6 months. I have 4 guitars and over the last months I've gotten to the point where only one of them is tuned down to Eb-- all the others are tuned standard. I've tried different gauges when tuning down (i.e. if it's 9's in standard, I'll try 9.5s or 10's at Eb) and it still just doesn't feel right to me. Standard just feels "right" to me. Anyone else feel the same?
