Some songs im looking at have different tunings....i could tune them but to me thats such a waste of my precious time....cant you use a capo on certain tunings? for instance if i had standard tuning and put the capo on the 2nd fret that would change the tuning to what kind? also if this is true could u tell me some other tunings using the capo.....thank you

It would, but most songs tune down. Throwing a capo on fret 2, most people would just say "capo 2" instead of tuning every string up, so it wouldn't work. Nice try though, I know different tunings are a pain in the ass.

usually, songs that require a different tuning are lower than the normal one, so you can't use a capo, a capo would be like tuning it half a note up every fret

AHHHHH i understand now....im an idiot. that makes sense capos make the tuning go up not down

The capo really just takes whatever tuning your using and puts it in a different key. If you want an actual different tuning, just tune with an electronic tuner, it ain't that hard.

the only song i can think of that has guitars tuned up by any significant ammount is 'like a stone' by audioslave. most people just use a capo, but for that morello used really light strings and tuned up. but pretty much anything else in an alternate tuning involves changing some of the strings or tuning down.

I play a whole step down and use capo if i need to do standard.
