Anyone who knows this song go and play it with a 6th fret capo it sounds so much better and the first solo sounds so bluesy its so awesome try it.
Actually over all i think Strat tone is so much better in the key of A# i.e 6th fret capo
Castles Made of Sand is played with no capo, and is loosely in the key of G, tuned about a quarter step down.
jimi played it with no capo, he's trying to tell you to play it with a capo cause it sounds better.
Oh, ok. Well thank you stratocaster54.
its all cool
