I think this was an attempt to make the most labor-free capo; it is close. The major knock on this is that switching positions isn't simply as easy as rolling your thumb on the roller. The capo easily becomes misaligned (not parallel with fret) when you shift the capo to a desired postion. You almost always have to do a final "touch-up" adjustment of the capo to make sure it is lined up correctly. One cool thing is that when you want to go back to regular open tuning (0 fret) you can roll this capo onto the nut, clearing the strings. All in all though, I think it is no more convenient than the Kyser Quick-Change, which I now use. Another thing I don't like is the fact that the two metal axle covers on the sides have a harsh grip finish, like fresh grips on metal dumbells. I accidentally dropped the capo on top of my guitar and guess what? That jagged finish on those metal parts dented my guitar!

    Comments about Glider GL-1 Guitar Capo:

    The capo was very easy to put on and remove. I was
    quickly able to learn how to move it with my thumb
    alone.
    It stayed straight on the fret board and didn't
    cause any problem with my tuning.
    This is the best capo I've owned by far.

        Comments about Glider GL-1 Guitar Capo:

        Purchased this capo to play "My Heart Will Go On" the Titanic Movie song. Watched videos of it on YouTube and was impressed by the unique method of the key change. It works extremely well but requires two hands to install, so if on stage best to have a guitar all set up ahead of time. The capo is well made and does not scratch or wear the neck finish at all. Every guitar I used it on stayed in perfect tune even after pulling the capo up a fret. You can slide/glide it with your thumb or reach up with your right hand and roll from the top. Works well either way just keep it as straight as possible after the move.
        Money well spent.

        Comments about Glider GL-1 Guitar Capo:

        Rolling the capo during playing without interrupting the tune takes some practice. Works well on my classical guitar with a flat fretboard, and at least to my ear, improves the tone compared to a clamp-on capo from another manufacturer. A bit difficult to put on and take off. You can supposedly roll it onto the head above the nut when a capo is not needed but I have not tried that. Although well made, it is expensive, so I can't say you get high value for the money.

          This piece of garbage is for the wannabe's and hacks that think it will make then play better. It wont !. It is difficult to apply and even more cumbersome to use. And I hope you like how sharp it will raise your strings when you "slide it off the nut". Kyser is the only way to go. Super fast and adjustable on the fly....not this piece of junk !! Your better off with a pencil and a rubber band !

          Good for 6 string but too small for 12.

          By Mark Clemens

          Comments about Glider GL-1 Guitar Capo:

          I play a lot of Celtic tune sets with key changes between tunes. Since I play in DADGAD tuning, a capo is a must. This GL-1 works very well on my old Guild 6 string which has a nice narrow neck. It takes some practice, but I can now change keys without missing a beat and the guitar stays in tune. Problems mentioned by others of it not sliding straight or the guitar going out of tune can be corrected with a little practice. My Taylor 12 string is another matter. The capo is just too small to accommodate the wider neck. It always slips off and ends up with the first string pair not capoed. The mechanisms is also a bit bulky and gets in the way for some first position chords. This is a minor inconvenience. Overall, I am very happy with the GL-1 for use with my 6 string and really wish that they would make one that could be used on a 12 string. For that I just use my old Kyser but it is not as fast and precise as the GL-1.
          convenient for key changes but a bit bulky and gets in the way for first position chords.
          Solid construction. No problems with the springs

          Easy to move, hard to play.

          Comments about Glider GL-1 Guitar Capo:

          This capo does what it says it does; it moves on the neck very easily, and when not in use, glides over the nut without a hitch. However, there are 2 major drawbacks: 1. It messes up your tuning. It drifts vertically every time you move it, and stretches the strings slightly out of tune. Also, you have to have it sitting on the nut before you tune.2. It's bigger than most capos, and makes hitting certain chords extrememly difficult, especially at speed. I'm ready to try a different capo, and am not pleased with that after spending almost double for this one.
