Moved this to a DiscussionMost 6 string acoustic guitars are 16" radius fretboards (both of my Seagulls certainly), while my Fender Hellcat 12 string has a 12" radius (more curve). My Epiphone…Continue

Capos on the headstock 8 Replies

I was involved in a jam the other day and when I put the tuner on my headstock, one of the other players said, "Jim, I hope you're not gonna leave that tuner on there." I agree with him.  I strongly…Continue

Capo Confusion 16 Replies

I have a capo, and I've tried it out a few times, but I must be doing something wrong because the notes sound muddy and strange. My main question is, do you move the chords up the neck in relation to…Continue

There is an old story about this...

 

A man found a bottle on the beach and rubbed it and a genie came out.  The Genie gave him one wish...He said, "I would like a bridge from Florida to Hawaii so that I can drive there anytime I wish."  The Genie said..."that's a pretty tall order, any chance you cold make another wish?"  The man thought and and then said: "Okay,could you make me understand women?"  The Genie said "How many lanes do you want on that bridge!!!"

Wait a dog-gone minute here...I have to be the one to figure out women!?!?!?!??!?!

I'll stick to figuring out world peace...or is that the same task?!?!?!?!?  Edward

Nice card, JB. Thanks. Great pedalboard, by the way. Once Edward gets women figured out and the mechanical capo / pedal is available, we can start on a completely wireless guitar system.  ;~}

Here is a way to quickly figure out a Capo setting on stage.  I use this card with a Capo grid on the pedal board.  You can also make wallet size cards, etc.

Edward, How many great ideas have been scrapped because that was the first requirement!
Comment by Edward Sparks on October 12, 2010 at 2:33pm
Hey Christopher,
I'll get on that...your idea, my mechanics, we'll make a fortune...
However I can't get started on it until I figure out women!!! Edward

Edward, if we could just get a footpedal / MIDI footswitch to control a mechanical capo...

I'd buy it!

I read excitedly about the Morpheus "auto capo" and thought, WOW this is great, I can change capo position with my FOOT! Then I realized that it wouldn't work for me because i am playing a fullsize acoustic and not in a stadium, so I am going to hear the guitar itself and also the "capoed" sound coming from the monitor. But I do see it as a great asset for solidbody electric players. They also make another box that works the other way...lowering the pitch by halfsteps...but same problem for me! Edward
