hi, my capo arrived today and ive learnt 2 songs this morning; this boy- james morrison
and boats and birds- gregory and the hawk,
i was just wondering, could you recommend some acoustic songs that use a capo on the third fret, i know that you can use capo's on most songs, but i like to play songs that sound like the real thing
(sorry if this is in the wrong place)
thanks in advance

There are a few dylan songs that have a capo on the third if i remember rightly its been a while since i played them.
#3
Any particular reason you want to use it on the third fret?

I can recommend two great songs to learn that, if memory serves me right (it often doesnt, lol) have a capo on the 4th. Big love and Go insane by Lindsey Buckingham/fleetwood mac.

cool! thanks for the help, i guess i should have mentioned that those 2 songs use a capo on third and i wanted to go straight into another song without changing the capo position, thanks anyway!

First Day of My Life by Bright Eyes.

I believe Death Cab For Cutie's I Will Follow You Into The Dark is played with the capo on second.

90sK,
Try "Brian Wilson" by The Barenaked Ladies. Good song and easy, too.

First Day of My Life is on the 4th, and I Will Follow You Into the Dark is on the 5th. Try No Surprises- Radiohead, and To Be Alone With You- Sufjan Stevens.

Eh, my bad. I haven't heard either song in forever and a day.

If you wanted to play Wake Up by COheed and Cambria in standard tuning then you'd use a capo on the 3rd fret.
