Capos heighten the pitch of the guitar. Is there a thing that lowers the pitch of the guitar? I've been having problems playing a song on guitar and also singing it.
For example, a song's chord progression is B♭sus - Fsus - Gm7 - Fsus. These chords sound beautiful when played in standard tuning, starting on the 1st fret.
But for my vocals to sound more relaxed, everythin has to be 1 tone down, starting from A♭sus ...
Yet when I play the same progression in standard tuning starting from Absus - it doesn't sound as beautiful to me although the progression is correct. I figured out - maybe because of the change of chord position and fingering (starting from not from 1st but from 4th fret)
So I tune it to D Standard (whole step down) - I have the same fingering position as in standard tuning playing from B♭sus.
But.... tadaaaam... it also won't sound as beautiful as in standard tuning starting from B♭sus... I don't know - maybe because the strings are more relaxed the sound is different and not as beautiful to me...
It feels like it's the same song, but the vibe and color is totally different.
So here I have a dilemma.
Can it be that some songs sound beautiful only in one specific key? Only in one they were written?
Sorry if this is a weird or complicated question to you guys.
