Kyser Short-Cut 3 string partial capo – DADGAD guitar sound in standard tuning!
Kyser have revolutionised the world of capo design with their “quick change” spring loaded capo concept. Made in the USA, their capos are perfectly designed to fit all standard electric and acoustic guitars and built with high quality springs which do not wear out over time, giving you reliable, in-tune transposition without fail!
These three string partial capos only cover three out of the six strings of the guitar. This unusual design has many beautiful sounding applications! One of the most popular is to apply the capo so that it frets the A, D and G strings of a guitar in standard tuning. This gives you the classic “open fourths and fifths” folky sound of the DADGAD tuning, but without having to learn a single new chord shape! If you would like to find out more about this check out Nye’s other website Folk Friend, which has a free video guide to the topic available here. There are also countless other potential applications of the partial capo for an infinite number of cool and unusual chord and song writing options!
