It’s frustrating when I’m unable to play a trippy, addictive rhythm satisfactorily because of its finger-torturing chord shapes. A capo is a Godsend. Trust me, it is, even though purists and pros might term it as ‘Cheater Barres’, which is rather unfair.
My intention wasn’t to bore you with factual descriptions about this amazing device. Apologies.
I have a fetish for Cappuccinos as well. They are Godsends too, especially when I’m agitated and hyper, snapping and yelling at everyone around me. Fantastic stimulants. My life would be incomplete without Caffeine, especially cappuccinos, with extra cream and chocolate sauce. Mmm. Cappuccino floods my head with inspiring thoughts, tunes and words.It is similar to a Capo which stimulates me to play the most difficult rhythms and leads, easily, with a bit of brainstorming included; a music stimulant.
So here I am, playing an easier version of Mayer’s “Your Body is a Wonderland”, capo and all, with a cup of creamy Cappuccino by my side, that is eagerly waiting to be sipped.
C is for + = Capo-chino
Guitar enthusiasts, fancy a Capo-chino?
