Introducing the While Shirt (tm). It's the shirt you wear
While you are doing other things. Wear it While you sew!
Wear it While you garden! Wear it while you review capos
on Youtube. But don't whistle While you wear it or Disney
will send their jack-booted lawyers in to kick you vigorously.
It's the While Shirt from Blammo!

On another popular site I frequent this conversation would have never made three pages without a dozen posters chiming in to say that capos are cheats used by incompetent players. Bravo Chiff & Fipple.

:-)

Tim, you can inform the people on that other site that frets are cheats used by incompetent players. If they can't control their exact fingerboard intonation without using frets as crutches, they're a bunch of losers.

Really, that sort of pedanticism is just about as ridiculous.

Those are the guys who will show up at an Irish session with a guitar and an attitude: "Hey I'm a great guitarist. I've been playing for umpteen years, and I've memorized Ted Greene's Chord Chemistry". Then proceed to completely mangle ITM backup.

Here is a link to a thread I started "Capos & Cheating".

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=74045&hilit=capo

There is a post from MTGuru packed full of explanation. This was one of the his comments that mattered most to me because it put into words for me what I felt. And not just because he mentioned me.

"I think Paul and mute's last sentence have it about right. The capo is really at least as much about timbre and voicings as just changing keys, given the very real limitations of the guitar's fingerboard, and the expectations of folk voicing."

These aren't in production yet but they sure are sharp. There are exotic woods too.

Lucky you.

A few months ago, my capo broke seconds before our church service was starting. I instantly had to find relevant songs in a key that didn't require a capo. Thalia hasn't designed 12-string capos yet.

Designed, yes, with a swap out pad set (just reached that stretch goal in Kickstarter) for an additional $10. Due to ship a few months later, though, I think the Jan/Feb timeframe. I may need one set up for 12-string, also. Depends on whether I get my brother's old Harmony re-braced and neck reset next year.
