Re: Capos

Put the Capo on the 2nd fret, and pretend that it's the a regular C chord shape, just like you would without the Capo, you're just gonna play two frets higher than normal. It makes it easier to transpose things. When the music tells you to Capo on 2 and then play a C chord, you PLAY a C, but because the Capo is there, it's actually a D chord (one whole step higher), if you put the Capo on the 3rd fret it becomes a D# (you can also call it an E flat, it's the same thing).

: I have been playing acoustic guitar for about 3 months and trying to teach myself through tablature and chord charts, but recently I tried to play a couple songs which required a capo on the 2nd fret, My question being how are chords like a G, C or E played with a capo on the 2nd fret? and is there some sort of chord conversion for playing with a capo and if so where could I find this?

: Thanks for your help!!
