About Guitar Capo
A capo, short for capo d’astro, capo tasto or capotasto [kapoˈtasto], Italian for “head of fretboard”; Spanish, capodastro [ka.po’ðas.tɾo]; French, capodastre; German, Kapodaster; Portuguese, capodastro) is a device used on the neck of a stringed (typically fretted) instrument to shorten the playable length of the strings, hence raising the pitch.
Playing with a capo creates the same musical effect as retuning all strings up the same number of steps. However, using a capo only affects the open note of each string. Every other fret remains unaffected (e.g., the 7th fret of an E-string still plays a B note for any capo position at or below the 7th fret), and thus a performer does not need to adjust for or relearn the entire fretboard as they might with retuning. The scale length of the strings of an instrument affects the timbre of the strings, and thus the use of a capo may alter the tone of the instrument.
There is no record of who invented the capo, although Giovanni Battista Doni of Italy was the first to record the term in 1640. And James Ashborn of America was the the first to apply for a capo-related patent in 1850.
Different styles of capos are affixed to a guitar neck just behind the fret wire by one of several different attachment methods. Most have a rubber-covered bar that actually holds down the strings, fastened to the neck with an elastic, nylon or other fabric strap; or by a spring, screw or cam-operated clamp.

How to Use Music Stands
A music stand is a pedestal or elevated rack designed to hold a paper score or sheets of music in position for reading. Most music stands for orchestral, chamber music or solo orchestra-family instruments (violin, oboe, trumpet, etc.) can be raised or lowered to accommodate seated or standing performers or performers of different heights.
So what is the appropriate height at which a music stand should be adjusted? Though this could vary from person to person, here are some suggestions.
Here’s how to be comfortable using a stand.
– Adjust the stand to the desired height to suit your style of playing
– Most stands also lets you adjust the tilt/angle of the main plate, so make use of that feature
– Don’t place the stand such that it blocks your view of other musicians, or the audience.
– In case the stand is not height-adjustable, you may have to use a bench/stool of the right height.
– Always carry a stand light to the venue, so that there’s enough light for you to read the sheet music / lyrics. de

Audio-Technica AT2020 Guitar Technology Diaphragm Condenser Microphone
Guitar Microphones are the choice for studio vocals, and any instrument recording where a more “deep” sound is desired.
