chico Changing Keys in Middle Song: Best way? (21) Changing Keys in Middle Song: Best way? 09 Oct 05

I use to play the piano where changing keys is very easy. But now with the guitar, changing 1/2 step up (from Dm chords to Ebm chords) is very difficult since the fingering is different.

So what is the best way to change keys with a guitar? I specifically refer to moving it up 1/2 step for the final verse of a song to give extra tension and effect to the singer and music.

If you use a capo, do you dare stop for a second to pull it up half a fret?

If not, what exact chord movements can you use to move from say C, to D?
