What Is The Kyser Short Cut Partial Capo?
Many songs today are written with chord progressions like E, F#m, A, B or G, D, Em, C. The Kyser Short-Cut partial capo makes those simple progressions even EASIER to play. The Kyser Short-Cut takes your mind off the chord changes and allows you more freedom when playing your guitar. It also allows you to “hammer on” and create new rhythms.
The Short-Cut can easily create a DADGAD-like sound, without retuning. To do so, just place the Kyser Short-Cut on the 2nd fret from the top to cover the 5th, 4th, and 3rd strings.
To play in a different key, you can use a 2nd capo closer to the headstock than the Kyser Short-Cut. For example, place a capo covering all 6 strings on the 3rd fret and the Kyser Short-Cut on the 5th fret to play in the key of G.
You can also use the Kyser Short Cut to ease the transition from bass runs to melodic leads played up the neck.
The Kyser Short-Cut can be used on any fret, in standard or inverted position.
