GUEST,Mike Rogers absolutely beautiful guitar work (108* d) RE: absolutely beautiful guitar work 11 Mar 10


I used to believe that the use of a capo was frowned on. I spent years trying to force my fretting fingers into impossible positions.
Then I saw that not only did Davy Graham capo at 3rd for Anji but so did Bert Jansch when playing the same piece. In fact the tune doesn't sound 'right' played in any other way.
When I saw Albert Lee and Clapton using capos on electric guitars I was both amazed and delighted.
With better guitars and better capos around these days the old intonation problems of yesteryear have disappeared. These days I'm 'proud to capo'.
