One of the most crucial but small pieces of gear a guitarist must have is the capo. Capos have created some of the most memorable guitar riffs and chord progressions in the history of music. Capos provide a unique opportunity to use open chords on practically every fret of the guitar depending on the placement of the capo. This also allows for singers to take tunes and change the key while using the same desired open chord shapes to enable them to sing in a key to their fitting.

Check out greats like John Mayer, James Taylor, Ed Sheeran and others to see capos be used in action. Each of these artists has utilized the capo to help enhance their ability to play lush sounding chords with open strings all across the guitar neck in addition to allowing them to play songs within their vocal range.

The way a capo works is very simple, it stretches across the entire fingerboard and will clamp down on each string and simulate that the guitar has open strings at the corresponding fret the capo is located on. Thus, you can play your open chord shapes at any fret on the neck that the capo is located.

Ever try to strum along to “Wonderwall” by Oasis and wonder why the chords are not in the same key? This is because Oasis recorded that guitar part utilizing a capo, allowing them to use open chords but in a unique key hence giving “Wonderwall” its great acoustic sound that has become one of the most iconic in history.

At N Stuff Music we do not only have capos for guitars, but other instruments as well. For all those mandolinists who need a capo we have you covered, Kyser makes capos capable for both banjos and mandolins so they can take full advantage of the possibilities as well.

Capos come in a variety of styles meant to cater to different players. For example, Dunlop has capos in which have their clasp underneath the neck of the guitar so as to be less invasive. G7th capos have no handle at all, instead you squeeze them onto the neck and they will stay clamped. Capos are available from Kyser capos for 12-string guitars as well.
