I've watched live performances of Something and I'm not seeing anyone playing with a capo on the 3rd fret. I was just wondering if you taught the song without the capo?

Does using the capo go with the recording?

Thanks!

We taught capo at the 3rd fret to match the recording. There is actually a new clip on YouTube from the Beatles Documentary "Get Back" on Disney Plus that shows them working up the track, and Harrison has the capo on 3.

Hope this helps!
