Well Im trying to read Comfortable ( John Mayer ).

And it says Capo on the third fret.
But then it says play a D chord but hammer on the 2nd on the high E..

How can I do this when I have a capo on the third.. Im confused.

Its probably refering to the 2nd fret, using the capoed third fret as open.

When it tells you to use a capo, tabs are usually written relative to it.
That means your open string becomes the capoed fret, in this case third-- and 1st fret is actually the 4th fret, 2nd is 5th, 3rd is 6th, and so....

Basically you'll be playing a D open formation starting on the 5th fret.

When the tab says play a D chord but hammer on the 2nd on the high E it means relative to the capo. So if your capo is on the thrid fret then the D chord is played as if the capo is the nut. Then, when you hammer on the second on the high E you are actually hammering on the 5th fret.

Whats the point of having the capo if u can just play it without it then? Doesnt it sound the same?

Yes you can play it without. Capos are used to change the relative pitch. In this case you're rasing the pitch by a tone and a half. Usually capos are used to make it easier to sing. SO yes you can play without a capo but no it wont sound the same, it will be a tone and a half lower.

No it puts the whole thing a few steps higher than if you played without the capo, so it makes all the difference in the world.. Just pretend your capo is the nut on your guitar, and play normally after that.
