OK, I just watched the video, and I want in on the "capo of the month club"!

Just watch it. You'll never be the same.

Oh jeez I think I split into 5 people that are all the same!

I laughed my head off. But you know what? A song writing buddy of mine who lives in Kansas City has written a novelty song called "Capo Madness" wherein he uses at least four capos, one of them a standard capo, and the other three are partial capos. In the middle of the song, he accidentally-on-purpose knocks off one of the capos. It's an entertaining gag.

I haven't used a Kyser since I stopped smoking, I Shubb'd them out.

Someone owes me 3 minutes and 50 seconds.

capos are like training wheels, man up and grip some real chords.

13

I think there are some misconceptions about capos. Fingerstyle players like to have open strings as much as possible, and sometimes the capo lends itself to that. There's more to it than I only know 3 chord shapes.

I used to never ever use them, but after a few gigs as an accompanist, they sure make transposing a good bit easier without having to retrain muscle memory. The open strings is a nice bonus too.

So whatever did happen to Sam Malone?

I put 12 of them on last night and I think I was abducted by Aliens.

EVERYBODY knows that if you add a RED capo the results are beyond amazing.

my favorite disappeared at the Nashville Roundup; so, I'm back to Kyser :(

Hilarious!

One of the comments below the video on Reverb said, "the world truly needs more videos like this..."

I agree.
