Capos are great because if a song isn't in your key you can transpose up or down so it suits your voice better. Some songs are easier to play when capoed too, I think. Shubbs are the best capos! [img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]

Oh and guess what? I was watching the Austin City Limits gig again and guess which capo Damien was using? Yep![img]smileys/smiley4.gif[/img] I looked at older pics and he had one like sarahukuk posted, so he must havepicked up a Shubb somewhere on the last American tour.

how do those shubbs work - do you just squeeze some how, or do you need to turn the screw?

you need to turn the screw only the first time you put it on your
guitar! it's to adjust it on your guitar neck! you can find some
information about it here:

Ewwww, Cille, that animation is disgusting and pervy... [img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img] [img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]

So "capos" is the thing that e.g. Jimi Hendrix used?

Personally, I like a kyser capo.





Can be kept easily on the Haedstock whereas the Shubb is a little more fiddly.


If you want to see this and want also to save seeerious money on strings picks etc go to http://www.stringbusters.com
