The CAGED chord families let you play easily in five basic open keys – C major, A major, G major, E major and D major.
But that’s not much use for a song in B-flat is it?
And what if you have a song written in B … but your vocalists really need it played in A to sound at their best?
How about when you want to flow two songs together, but the keys don’t fit?
Say hello to the Capo. This little mechanical device allows you to take any open-string chord on guitar, and play it in any of the twelve keys.
