Thread Name: Capo - what are the rules?
Subject: RE: Capo - what are the rules?
OK given that "only the electronic tuner" can tell the diff, the problem is that with each additional instrument there's the possibility of some creep. It's a pain to have to retune after capoing, and in this respect I find the capos with the finest pressure adjustments least likely to knock you our a few Hz--and this problem may be worst in the lowest positions. Or you can just say "close enough" and keep on pickin', and settle for all the conveniences of the Keyser. When you guys get your Shubbs dug out of the couch, explain how to retrieve picks from between the piano keys :)
