hello
i am somewhat new, so if this is a dumb question, i'll take this thread down
i was looking upon the tabs for "wonderwall" by oasis and it said that i needed to capo the secod fret

right now i am strapped for cash and cant afford even a simple capo, so my question is this: instead of using a capo couldnt i just tune up the guitar a tone and play the chords still? or would i have to buy a capo?

that could work, or you could put a screw driver or something behind your strings like sonic youth does
it makes it harder to play than a capo but your strings are less likely to break than tuning your guitar higher

you would risk some string breakage and maybe some neck stress (although not too drastic i believe) with tuning up (i dont know which fret has the capo).

or, i've heard people using pencils and rubber bands as a quick quasi-capo, but i've never done it.

you could but i dont think that the strings would hold and they would prbably just break...then you'd have to buy a set of strings to!!
