Is it pronounced cappo or cape-o?

As in: 'I fail at barre chords so I'll buy me a capo. Sum 41 FTW!'

How do you pronounce that?

It probably SHOULD be pronounced cappo, but all the cool kids say cay-po, and if you don't, you're a homo.

As a musical term as in Da Capo, yes, it is cap-o.

As a device for blocking all the strings of a guitar at a certain fret.... I don't think the root of the word comes from the same place.

"A capo tasto (from Italian capo, "head" and tasto, "tie or fret"), or simply capo" - wikipedia

since it's from italian with the root from their word for head it'll be pronounced like "cap" since that also comes from the italian for head, and that it the way the italians pronounce their a's.

Only americans seem to use long a's for stuff like that - it's just not heard elsewhere.

I don't honestly think it matters, as everyone I've ever met has understood what I'm on about when i say 'cap-o', even if they pronounce it as 'cay-po'.

So whichever you prefer I suppose.

Oh and CT - late I know, but I only just found out - congrats on the modship! Bout time IMO

Sum41 use capo's on lets say the third fret instead of just playing a barre chord on the third fret.

/thread

So they put the capo on for that one chord, then remove it and carry on playing the rest of the song

If a person wants to play I-IV-V in Bb without a capo, he or she will have to play barre chords. If he or she uses a capo on the third (or first fret, or even eighth fret), he or she can play exclusively open chord shapes. This is to the player's advantage because open chords tend to be somewhat easier to play. Capos are used in this way very, very often. I'm sure you know that, so I don't know why you're arguing.
#29
Haha barre chords = hard?
Surely you jest.
If you can't play them, just practice them instead of using a capo like a pansy.
Pretty obvious.

Hmmm.... I stand corrected, then. You learn something new every day.

I read the a in that to sound like the a in cat. Being Italian wouldn't it be an "ah" kid of sound like the a in party so like kah po.

I just say it cape-o
Si

In their song da capo, ace of base pronounce it as Caapo (not to say their vocals are pronunciation guides by any means). I've seen Paul Gilbert pronounce it as cape-o.

capo means start.
I think the origin of capo (as in the guitar accessory) and capo (as in the musical direction) is the the same.

capo: start of piece
capo: (new) start of fret board
