Hey guys,

I was watching the video for Windowpane by my FAVORITE band, Opeth. I noticed the guitar players used a very simple capo, and I was looking for one like that. I'll post pics below.

And just as an aside, I think people on this forum would LOVE Opeth. They can switch between hard rock to very light acoustic to distortion playing over acoustic, its amazing.

Here are the pics...if anyone knows any kind of capo that is similar to this, and can provide a link?

One shot of capo


Another shot


A Capo on the bass guitar, looks similar


Sorry I couldn't post better pictures. I tried taking snapshots of the video in Windows Media Player but it wouldn't show up, so I had to do it on Youtube.

Because, I've seen other caps, and they look too complicated. I want a simliar one to the one they use because I mostly play thier songs.

How much simpler can you get?

Apparently he wants the same one, for they are his FAVOURITE band and he LOVEs them.

Capital letters wont make people like them dude


Well they are my favorite band, I mean I don't think using caps makes a difference. The band is there, I simply suggested listening to them. If you dont wanna, fine. Not my funeral.

Anything that barres a paticular fret can be considered a capo. Everything from your pointer finger to a pencil and rubberbands to zip-ties. It really doesnt make a difference what one you buy, its going to give you the SAME sound and do the SAME thing. All of them are work just as simple as any other as well.

I even tried dressing up as a fly myself, and throwing myself out of the window in the hope that they will follow me. But to no avail.

Might be a Fender capo. I have one, they look like a muscle builder or something. You can get them for $10 or so from MF.

Opeth are very popular around here, man. Just go take a look at the Opeth thread in the metal forum. They're my favourite band as well
I will show you something different from either

Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you
I will show you fear in a handful of dust

A capo is a capo, seriously.

well i guess you all fail a bit, because tbh, a capo is not a capo.

trigger (kyser) capos are nice because you can put them on quick between songs and store them on the headstock when not in use.

BUT

they usually pull strings sharp. so you'll want to tune the guitar again after putting them on.

if you dont believe me because your ear isnt hearing it, then place the capo on and check the tuning.


the ones with fine adjustments (shubb) might be a little harder to get on, but you'll save time in the long run, because a light pressure will allow the guitar to stay in tune better.

This man knows exactly what he is talking about.

Capos like the one in this link allow you to adjust tighness of the capo and bring you closer to being in tune. I've also owned a Kyser, and those will make you EXTREMELY sharp.

It shouldn't matter if your favorite band uses something, your favorite band isn't always correct.

But yea, she's right It also has to do with how well your guitar is intonated as well I have found.
