Shubb C7b Original Brass 3-String 5-4-3 Partial Capo

  • £18.99

Loading...
  • Shubb Partial Capo It skips the outside string and covers the next three
  • either 2-3-4 or 5-4-3 (emulating DADGAD tuning)
  • Partial capoing is NOT the same as open tuning.
  • When the partial capo is applied at the second fret from the bass side, we describe the effect as emulating DADGAD tuning.

This means that when you play the capoed (but not fingered) strings, the notes are: EBEABE, which is the same relationship as DADGAD, but a full step higher. So isn't that the same as tuning into DADGAD and capoing up two frets? NO! It's important to realize that if you don't retune some strings, you are still in standard tuning. For example, consider playing a barre chord at the third fret. It's the same as if the capo were not there. And likewise, any notes fretted above the capo are not effected by the capo. Only notes that would have been open fifth, fouth, and third strings are effected. So if you are looking for a shortcut into DADGAD, to have an open tuning without RE-tuning, sorry ...that's NOT what the partial capo does. But if that's not the deal, what IS the deal? Well, that's for you to figure out. And enjoy the experimenting. We're not promoting a playing style, but responding to one that is already being developed by a number of guitar pioneers. There are some very nice sounds being produced with partial capos, and the rules still aren't finished being written. Join the fun.
