Thanks for checking out Acoustic Nation Players’ Pick –– a new poll series designed to let YOU decide what gear is deserving of our award. This time we’re checking out one of our favorite accessories — the capo.
If you’re a performing songwriter like me, or just a performer, you might find yourself feeling stagnant and falling into the same patterns of playing or writing, using the same chord progressions. Here’s an easy way to breathe some fresh life into your playing: Capo up!! I don’t mean just changing the key of what you’re playing already. I mean, explore the possibilities created by using a partial capo. These devices change the tuning of the guitar itself with just the squeeze of a spring, or the snap of a locking clip.
