    This may be a stupid question, but where can I find chord shapes, scales, etc. for playing in Eb? Haven't played much with alternate tunings, and I would like to start with this one .

    Isn't Eb Tuning simply dropping everything a Half Step Down? ( Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb). So your chord shapes & scales would just be transposed a half step down?

    I don't consider Eb 'altered' cause all the invervals are the same. It's just 'backwards capo'.

    I was thinking it would be that way, but I just wanted to ask people who are much more knowledgeable than I. Thanks guys.
