Capos and Keys or "How Do They Do That?!?"

Have you ever been to a live concert and watched multiple guitar players perform the same song, at the same time but one had a capo on their guitar and the other didn't?  Did you wonder what they were doing?
This weeks lesson is all about how to play a song in the same key with the capo in different places.  Why would you do that? Well, it means that each person is playing the same chords except that they're on different octaves.  This creates a multi-layered, full sound and avoids the "wall 'o guitar" sound.
Enjoy!
