Thread Name: Capo - what are the rules?
Subject: RE: Capo - what are the rules?
Mooh, certainly I see what you can do with it, it just seems to limit you slightly. Maybe I need to buy a "sacrificial" capo and play with it a bit to see if it works for me. What I found strange though is that some ppl have said "You can buy a partial capo (with chunks cut out, or designed that way) and play DADGAD/drop-D/other tuning without having to retune your guitar". That kind of bothered me, cos it obviously wasn't so - you'd get the right open strings, but be fingering in EADGBE. Me just be caveman, not think of clever things like that... :-)

Gary T, sure. But I was just asking about the Third Hand or otherwise-hacked-about capo which came up a bit earlier in the thread. Sorry, maybe I wasn't too clear.
