I’m all for folks carrying capos as long as there’s proper training, so let’s do it. A capo is much more than just a fun word to say.
Why do you have re-tune the 5th string after you capo it? I don’t see you doing that on the other 4 strings.
Great question. Due to the nature of the 5th string spikes, they pull that small diameter string more sharp than a standard capo.
