    I was just watching a video of Blake Shelton covering The Gambler. The song key shifts up a whole step halfway through: from Eb to F (capo 1, actually playing key of D and then E). When it shifts, he simply slid his capo up 2 frets – so he didn’t need to do a barre chord for the V7 (would be B7 in key of E). Seems like a cheat … Waht say you?

    Check out the “Harmony Halls” cover by josh turner. What he does with the capo will blow your mind

    @gregD35 I don’t think it was necessarily cheating to change the capo. He was changing the pitch to the song.
