Zebedee Naming chords for capoed instruments (25) Naming chords for capoed instruments 14 Jan 01

I'm putting together a few song sheets, where the guitar is capoed.

I'm not sure how I should notate the chords. I've seen several different ways of doing it.

If for example, I have a song in Eb, which uses the D shape chords, with a first fret capo, should I include the Eb chords in brackets, write it all in D or what?

Is there any sort of convention here?
