I'll be playing my vintage Martin 00 guitar, and today we'll be using a capo. So, we'll take a minute to discuss a few different types of capos and how to properly use this "guitar players friend"!

In this video you'll see several types of capos. Some common brands include Shubb, Kaiser, the newer G7 capo, all of which are available at your local music store or online.

By using the capo we are able to change the key of the song without having to change the chords. This is very handy for singers, and a great tool for beginners because you can access nearly any key using first position chords and your capo!
