Hello all.. I'm new to the site, so don't throw anything at me if I do anything wrong.. Anywho, I'm trying to play "Little Lion Man" by Mumford and Sons. The problem is in the tuning. Everywhere I go, it says to use a capo on the fifth fret for this song. But when I play on that fret it's out of tune, so what tuning should I use? I browsed that tuning thread, but I couldn't find the answer. How do I tune it correctly with the capo?

Here are the tutorials I was following*:

*Mainly the second one

Any help would be great, you guys are the masters!

if you are using standard tuning, ebgdae, you need to re-tune those strings to ecgcae and then stick your capo on the 5th fret.

Im pretty sure those two links you linked play in normal tuning.


i didn't check the second link. one of the tabs says its ecgcae though.

It doesn't really matter what the tuning is, when you see Am, it's Am. Except for the fact that there's a capo on the 5th fret. I just got my guitar out, chords worked fine for me.
