I'm entirely capable of changing the key of a song, but the singer of my country band keeps asking to move songs that really suit the original key and open strings. I do not like using capos when I have to play lead, either. This is getting annoying. I seem unreasonable if I'm not exactly fond of it, but it really kills some of the fun (sometimes only fun) of playing the songs. I really feel that some riffs need to be in the original key. I know the singer is "more important", but some of you must know what I mean.
