"Capo" in context

A capo is a device used to alter the pitch of a stringed instrument. It does this by pressing down all of the strings of the guitar at a specific spot on the fretboard, changing the tension and thus changing the pitch. Most often seen on acoustic and electric guitars, capos are also used on banjos, bouzoukis, mandolins, and other stringed instruments.

A capo is beneficial because it allows a guitarist to play in different keys without having to learn difficult chord shapes or fretboard patterns.
