How To Use A Guitar Capo – Beginner

FavoriteLoadingBookmark this Lesson.


In this free video guitar lesson you will learn how to use a capo on the guitar. I have had some requests from viewers asking how to use a guitar capo. I thought instead of answering via email a full video guitar lesson would be easier.

It is a pretty simple process and by the end on the video you will fully understand not only how to use a guitar capo, but why so many guitar players use a guitar capo as well.

Just about every well known guitar player has used a capo at one time or another on the guitar. It can be used to create some dazzling effects, or just to change the key of a song. Whatever you would like to use a guitar capo for, I hope you find this simple video guitar lesson helpful.

Enjoy!! Carl..

    Capos are a lot of fun. I used to think they were for cheating, but I’ve changed my mind.

    Hi, I was kinda hoping you showed me HOW to set a capo properly. I always have to retune my guitar if I place a capo, some notes will get sharp (I guess because my floating tremolo gets lifted?)

    Kind regards,

    Victor

      You should set it up right behind the fret for the best intonation. 🙂
