Either that, or you have the other instruments in your band tune down as
well, as Hendrix and Stevie Ray did. You can play things in open keys, but
it will all sound down a half-step. You don't have to move anything down a
half-step or up a half-step, but it will all sound a half-step lower.
However, if you want to play with others who *don't* tune down, you'll have
to transpose up. Or have them tune down. Overall, it's a pain in the ass. It
also screws up the intonation on your guitar, unless you have the guitar set
up to be able to do this.
