That's a joke about the 'amplifier capo' right? Because it sure looks like a pad for protecting the amp from getting scratched while moving.

We used to talk about a knacker-capo to help hit the high notes....

Capos have, according to the lore, been made even for pianos, and they're a feature on some electronic organs. In these, it's claimed you can play in any key and sound like you're in any other key. The "shifters" for some organs apparently work well, although I'm not sure how good the few "changeable key pianos" actually were.

Clarinets and Trumpets/Cornets sometimes have a "Pseudo Capo" in the form of a differnt length tube you can insert in place of the original, but work only to the extent of shifting between Bb and A tunings so far as I've seen.

Some banjo players aparently use capos of various sorts, but the question of whether a banjo ever is in tune, or really needs to be, remains somewhat in debate.

I have a capo for a wine bottle. If I just want to get a little buzz, I move the capo up the bottle until my strings rattle. If I want to get hammered, I take the thing off the bottle and snap it on my self control.

No thanks.

I prefer knowing the chords. That way, I don't have to lug a lot of crap around in addition to my guitar. I do use a Shubb or a wooden çejilla (flamenco capo). I prefer the çejilla.

I'm thinking of designing a "car-po"
There would be 3 settings,
1. "Man". This would allow unresticted to all the vehicles functions as, quite clearly, men over 30yrs of age are the only people capable of handling such a machine.
2. "Juvenile". For use by boys (men under 30). This would restrict the vehicle's speed to something reasonably appropriate to the prevailing road conditions. It would also disconnect any audio equipment fitted to said vehicle.
3. "women". Would prevent the vehicle from starting. This would free up much needed road space during "school run" hours and have the dual effect of reducing carbon emissions and providing women with much needed excercise by forcing them to walk the 200 yards to the school gates.
No need to thank me, happy to help. ;-)
