It really is interesting to use a full capo and half capo together and move the half capo around the neck in relation to the full capo, even switching from top to under the neck with the half capo.  You get some alternative tunings fast that capture the audience depending on the fingering and picking.  I have a Third Hand Capo that has not been on the guitar yet.  Any suggestion on best use of this accessory.

Ooh... I forgot... I did the same for my mandolin using an old Dunlop capo... but I had to cut and re-sew the belt..

I agree with Richard. IMO Shubb is still the best. I was reading the article about five string capo at page 80 in the August issue... I always feel the same when I think that I did my first one (more or less 25 years ago) by simply shortening a bit of a regular Shubb... Stupid man! You should have patented it!...

Maybe next life I'll have another good idea...

If you get caught touching your feminine side, you have to attend political correctness and sensitivity classes.

You can do it, just get in touch with your feminine side.

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!!!"
