Wow, only on this forum can a single answer question become three replies...

And the answer to the question was a single letter too!

Hats off those of you who use Capos.


Tried them and just got lost.   So I use a lot of pure Triads (just three notes)

<Grin>  Just saw Phil Keaggy in concert and he played a song with 2 capos; and one of them he said he had notched out to miss certain strings.

THAT was confusing ...

Don't knock it 'til you try it. I've modified capos to "miss" certain strings. It really creates a huge sound - great for solo accompaniment or a solo instrumental. I've modified several Shubb capos to grab 3, 4 and 5 strings for all kinds of "alternate tunings without retuning".

Check this out for some inspiration -

I use a cut capo all the time.  Love it.  

Okay, if you want capo madness, take a look at Trace Bundy and what he does with 3 or 4 at once (and changes them during the song).


Makes me want to give up sometimes.:)

he's got 5 there, rick!

He's no Michael Hedges:

Really hard to find good videos of Hedges. He was gifted beyond measure.

Hedges is the man! August Rush and such!

Thanks so much for that! But it does make me cry.
