i was wondering if it was the same as tuning your guitar half step down?

The principle is the same. A half step/semi-tone is still a half step/semi-tone on any instrument. In practical terms, if you tune down a half-step then, as you say, a capo on first fret will put you back playing in the key you were in before you tuned down.

'Zactly the same as on your guitar. :)

Sounds right to me.

Buddhu! Nice to see you here! Got my Lanikai tenor today, so I'll be dropping in pretty regularly..
