The Goal: Using the Capo when necessary

When first starting out with the capo and discovering it’s wonderful uses, it’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that it’s a replacement for learning new chords. DOn’t make this mistake.

The capo is another tool that you will have to make your songs sound great but you must always be looking out for new chords, fingerings and skills. Use the capo when you are looking to change the key, maintain that “open” sound and when you are writing songs and need to move quickly through key changes.

Enjoy and good luck!
