Definition for: Capo

A device used to press all of the strings down at the same fret, essentially creating a new nut. This allows a player to use the standard open chords to play in a different key. For example, playing the C, F and G major open chord shapes with a capo on the 2nd fret turns them into D, G and A major chords.
