Last year, when I polled the Worship Guitar Class Newsletter list, a number of people wanted to know how to use a capo. Here’s a brief 1 minute video with the basics, plus how to make a capo with common household objects.
In the next Volume of Worship Guitar Class I’ll be showing you how to make bar chords in different families up the fretboard. There isn’t space here to go into the details, but capos are great for playing with other guitarists. You can play the same chords but in different octaves. For example, when you’re playing an E chord another guitarist can play a D chord form with a capo on the 2nd fret. These are both E chords and sound great played at the same time.
