Hey guys, I just got a Capo because a few songs I wanted to learn to play says to Capo a certain fret. Such as these:

and

Now I know the open chords and how to play them in those songs, but it says to put the capo on the first or second fret. Then how would I finger those open chords if the Capo is in the way? I'm a bit lost. Please help! Thanks!

the same way you normally would...

for example, if you put the capo on the second fret, then move your fingers up two frets.
Banging on a trash can
Drumming on a street light

i would move your chords up one fret to see what that does
Guitars:
Ibanez RG4EX1
Epiphone SG w/EMG's

Amps:
Peavey Windsor Head w/ JSX Cab
MicroCube (for the sake of practice at college)

Pedals :
Fulltone Full Drive 2 Mosfet
Digitech Whammy
Dunlop Crybaby

just pretend the capo is like the nut and the next fret over is the first
that always helped me

Rock Star Arrogance... Need I say more? :P


Imagine the capo as a movable nut. Just play the open chords as you normally would, but in the "new nut position."
