  • One thing to keep in mind is that applying a guitar capo changes the tension on the strings, and as such, can alter the tuning of the guitar. Make sure you check your tuning after applying a capo, as well as after you’ve removed it. (See related post: )

    The guitar capo is one of the most basic but useful of guitar accessories. Clamped on the guitar neck just behind the desired fret, the primary use of the capo (short for the Italian , or "head of the fretboard") is to raise the pitch of the strings by shortening the string length, enabling a guitarist to transpose a song to a higher key, and still use the original chord shapes.

    Another very cool feature of using a guitar capo is that you really change the sound of the guitar; if you move it a ways up the neck the guitar can even start to sound a bit like a mandolin or another much higher instrument. If you’re clever, you can use this to your advantage and create some very interesting sounds… this is a great technique for adding a second guitar part to a song you’re recording for instance.
