      I caught a John Gorka concert and saw this little marvel of a capo. So simple and yet it adds so much color to the sound. So I bought it and have played with it alone as well as with a full capo to change keys. Hint: put it just on the 7th fret and play with Amin/F/C chords and then strum. Then cover the open strings on the 3rd or 5th fret and strum - very cool - you are playing below the capo. Then I caught the short cut capo videos that Kyser has online. Now I own a full 6-string capo, the short-cut capo, and a drop-D capo. Yes, sometimes I play with three capo's on my fretboard. I know, I could learn all the open tuning variations but when you learn the power of these capo's, then you don't have to learn open tunings or spend extra time tuning.

      This capo pulls the three strings too far out of tune. If it were on all six strings then at least they all would go out of tune somewhat together. The re-tuning is too much of a hassle. I'm going to get a different brand to use on stage.

          Comments about Kyser Short Cut 3-String Acoustic Guitar Capo:

          I've played around for years with alternate tunings. I like the sounds, but hate the time needed to tune. This isn't exactly the same as alternate tuning, but it offers some of the uniqueness of alt. tunings. If you're going this route, I'd suggest purchase of a book of chords for partial capos. I've also played with a combination of single string alternate tunings and partial capos. And of course there are options with 2 partial capos.
          So there is some interesting options and opportunities for the use of this technology. However, it's no substitute for solid performance. If you can't play, it won't make you sound better.

          Not for electric guitar

          Comments about Kyser Short Cut 3-String Acoustic Guitar Capo:

          I thought this might be fun to play with but it really only works on acoustics. On an electric, the angle of the capo pulls the strings out of tune and it's very difficult to get it to stay in place. On an acoustic with much thicker strings, it's fine. The name of this product is accurate - acoustic capo.

              I'm self taught and play for the fun with my kids. Occasionally I accompany someone singing. This capo makes it easy to change the dynamics when you are strumming with someone else.

                Comments about Kyser Short Cut 3-String Acoustic Guitar Capo:

                Works great on the lower part of the neck. In the mid to high neck, the cut out doesn't quite match the strigs on my guitar, so its a bit tricky. But works great on the low neck. Most useful in the 2nd fret position. I bought a book on using partial capos to go with it, which is helpful getting you started if you have never used a short cut capo.

                Very nice "cut/chop" capo

                Comments about Kyser Short Cut 3-String Acoustic Guitar Capo:

                I used to make these with a hacksaw. Nice to have one that is factory made for alternate tunings. Easy to park on the headstock, easy to adjust.
                does exactly what it's supposed to do!
                Kyser...that name means quality capos.
                Very good value

                Awesome capo. A must-have.
                You have to buy this thing. It's an amazing piece of gear that I don't think I could live without. There really isn't much more I can say. This thing is fantastic. Not a single complaint.

                This is the coolest thing...maybe even before sliced bread!

                Comments about Kyser Short Cut 3-String Acoustic Guitar Capo:

                As I said above, it's a really cool product!
                Man! Why didn't I think of this! In the past I have avoided putting some of my DADGAD songs in my sets, because I hate re-tuning in the middle of a set and it always seemed a bit puffed up to take two guitars to a simple gig. Enter this beautiful little device: and presto! no re-tuning. It basically takes a standard tuned guitar and changes it to DADGAD up a full tone. Then (and this is even slicker than all that) playing up the neck it's back in standard tuning again!

                My advice: buy one for each guitar case or you'll find it's always in the one you left at home.
                how much can you really do to a capo?! it either capes or it doesn't (capo schmapo, just so long as it sounds pretty!)
