How To Use A Guitar Capo The Right Way

I played guitar for several years before ever using a capo.

Growing up playing rock, heavy metal and pop guitar, I did not see a need for it.  However, once I started playing a lot of acoustic guitar, I realized just how valuable the guitar capo was and how it would serve me well if I learned how to use it correctly.

Guitar players use capos all the time for placing a song in a specific key to suit a singe’s range, or to accommodate a certain fingering etc.

I have created a “cheat sheet” for you in regards to knowing what key you are in when moving the capo up and down the neck.
