evansakes help for people using partial capos (35) RE: help for people using partial capos 04 Apr 13


You can get more interesting variations using the partial (or butchered) capos at the fourth fret and playing in C or G (actual E or B).

It works pretty well with the capo covering top 5, middle 4 or 3 strings (either way round).

Also try tuning the guitar in DADGAD and then adding the partial capo at 2nd fret and playing in C...some interesting sounds become possible. Randall Williams is the master at this sort of thing. He uses Kyser capos which I personally don't care for much. They presumably pay him well though.

This video
is a bit of an eye-opener
