I recently created a video with some guitar instruction on how to use a capo; however, I keep getting more questions, such as where to put it and how it is used.
SO – I wanted to give a little more guitar instruction on capos and show some really basic examples on on how quickly you can change the key of a song to help you or those who are trying to sing along with your playing.
In this video Amanda is helping me demonstrate by singing along in some keys that are both good and bad for her. You'll notice that even though I move the capo around I am still playing the same three chords!
I am often asked the question, “Do I need a musical background to learn guitar?”
I think the fear from the folks who haven’t previously picked up an instrument is that it will be too hard or too time consuming. Maybe they have had experiences with music in the past that were difficult and they are worried the guitar will be the same way.
Good news! Check out my video and I’ll tell you my thoughts!
