Does it damage strings to leave a capo on for an extended period of time? If so, how long until I should take it off? In case it matters, I have that gold dunlop capo. Thanks!

is it really that hard to just take it off when you're done playing? How lazy are you man?


Maybe he wants to tune it down half a step.... and then put the capo on the first fret so he never has to tune back in forth.... don't forget about this thread yet because I am curious.

Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

^+1.. even if you dont ever take it off, at least move it around a bit so it doesn't mess with your truss.

Thanks for the support, but I'm actually pretty lazy. But really it's mostly things coming up, and me running out of my house last minute. Shit happens, and my acoustic just lies there on the couch. It's an acoustic btw, I rarely capo my electrics. That might make a difference.

the only thing bad about leaving a cap on is that the strings dig into the rubber on the capo, and could leave permanent indentations in it if you leave it on there
