I've got this lovely simon & patrick acoustic which is great for single notes and finger picking, but is a bit 'taut' for chord work, even with very thin strings. So I had this idea to detune the guitar and put a capo on, for a 'looser' feel.

I tuned it down to C#. And put a cop on 3rd fret. It's pretty cool and does seem to 'twang' a little more. . Has anyone else tried this?
