  4. Kris chord says:

    i started playing guitar 2 months ago, then i just notice this capo on some songs i looked at, do i still need it? cause i already know about bar chords and how the Aminor with the capo suddenly became a Cminor and Cmajor became a d#(?) are there any more use for it? or will it somewhat mess with how i play songs? will it improve the way i play or somethin?

  6. Rick Richtmyer says:

    One of the biggest issues about using a capo is that often the guitar will not be in tune when you are using it. This can be minimized by making sure that the capo is as close as possible to the desired fret and is straight across the neck. This is NOT how it is being demonstrated in this video. Other than that the video is a good tutorial on the use of a capo.
