I'm working on a solo guitar version of She's Always a Woman by Billy Joel. I bought a lead sheet from guitarinstructor.com. It's in Eb. I'm planning to come up with my own arrangement of it based on my own ability, or lack thereof.
What I'm wondering is, would it be a good idea to change the key of the song to make it better to play for solo guitar? If so, how did you come to the conclusion that it should be changed, and how do you decide which key? And when I ask "better" for solo guitar, perhaps that would mean easier. I guess I would ask how a more accomplished guitarist would make the decision to change the key for any reason.
Sorry about that... I actually meant to link to the ukulele version which is in Eb. Here is the G version that I accidentally posted in the original question.
Also changed the title from "easier for solo guitar" to "better for solo guitar"
