A capo is used to transpose the pitch of a song. For example, if you put your capo on the 2nd fret, and play a “C” chord, the pitch is actually that of a “D” chord without the capo. Why would you use a capo? It’s primarily used to effortlessly transpose the pitch of a sing while playing the original chords. For example, if you’re a singer and the song you’re playing is in a key too low for your singing range, add a capo to the 2nd or 3rd fret and ta-da; The song is now in a higher key that fits your vocal range!
