Thread Name: Capo - what are the rules?
Subject: RE: Capo - what are the rules?
Grab, while Mooh is talking about modifying capos so that some string(s) is untouched by it, Rick (many posts ago) was referring to just tweaking it a bit, removing a small bit of rubber over the bass E string so that it is not overly stretched. It's analagous to have an angled saddle to compensate for the tendency of strings of different thicknesses to deflect a different amount.
