If you’re looking for a way to learn how to use a guitar capo, this page is for you.

All that the capo does is increase the pitch of your open strings, so you can use easier open string chord shapes instead of barre chords to achieve higher voicings.

In case you don’t have one yet, my top recommendations on capos in order are:

  1. G7th Performance 3 capo
  2. Kyser quick-change capo

Below, you will find all of our guitar lessons on songs that require a capo to play in the correct key.
