WHAT IS A CAPO?

A capo short for capodastro, capo tasto, or capotasto, Italian for "top of fretboard" is a device used by musicians on the neck of a stringed instrument to transpose and shorten the playable length of the strings, thereby increasing the pitch.

A capo raises the pitch of a fretted instrument so that it can be played in a different key with the same fingerings as an open instrument. It uses a fret on an instrument to create a new nut that is higher in pitch than the instrument's original nut.

Capos can also be used to loosen the string tension and lower the string action a bit. You can tune your guitar a whole step below standard tuning. It can be brought into regular tuning with the use of a capo on the second fret. Another advantage of this technique is, that you can switch in between a whole step down and standard tuning in a split second without having to tune your guitar each time.


FOR ALL INSTRUMENTS

Whether you play guitar, bass, ukulele, or mandolin & banjo, there is a capo for every instrument.

CAPO GUITAR HACK

When using a ukulele capo for your guitar, you can create completely new tunings, depending on the position of your capo. Positioning a uke capo on the 5th fret, only four strings will be fretted and you will have A D G C B E tuning. When experimenting with different tunings and capo positions, you can find a lot of musical possibilities with open chord shapes, that are perfect for strumming chords or fingerstyle.
