    Hello @Screaming_fingers_jackson ;

    You need to look at the Shubb. It’s adjustable, inexpensive, easy on, and pretty much the standard. Can’t be beaten, though everyone keeps trying to outdo them. And that makes the other capos more expensive.

    But I have found any capo works. Just retune after putting on the capo. And make sure you give each string an upward tug to make sure the string is pinched down evenly. Many times, that alone makes my string go from sharp to the correct note. Also, the position within the fret space is important. But you’ll only know what works if you use your tuner with the capo on. Don’t expect the strings to be tuned correctly after you have put on a capo. That’s too great an expectation.
