    Ep89 Why You Should Use a Capo

    In this free guitar lesson, I explain why you should use a capo. Some people think using a capo on guitar is a sissy way to transpose a piece of music. But using a capo on guitar is about more than just playing in different keys–it’s about making use of chord shapes that make your playing sound better.

Game changer

I Have gone from a strum along and noodle a solo with my band (for the last 20 years!), to opening my mind and playing with some solid listening, reading (I bought his book, it’s fantastic) and lots of practice.
I have grown so much.
Thanks desi.
