that's pretty much the sole purpose of the capo...to change a key.

my mate users a nail and a piece of material.

and the sole purpose of the capo is to make it easier to get chords to fit your voice. all though personally, i would try to make my voice fit the chords (if its a cover) and only use it if i 100% had to or it was my own song

That's... yeah. All that needs to be said.

Have you ever tried to explain what a capo is for to someone who has no musical knowledge whatsoever? It's not easy.

That's a totally original criticism. No one has ever accused them of hypocrisy before.

Or if you don't wanna play barre chords on your acoustic. Seriously, I hate having to play barre chordso n my acoustic. It has a kinda high action.
