Okay so i just needed a capo and brought the first (cheap) one i saw on amazon:

Big mistake!

It works fine from the 5th fret but anything before that it practically mutes the strings because it is really loose.

Is there anything i can do so this wont be a problem?

Its extremely frustrating!

Sounds like it just needs tightening up - even the cheapest of capos are normally adjustable, if this one isn't it really was a mistake (sorry!).

If it can be tightened, it should start working anywhere on your fretboard
