I am an eclectic guitarist that likes a lot of options. I find that by using the spider capo, I am able to be versatile. I did have a concern that it would damage and harm my guitar, or that it would not be strong enough to hold down the strings, but it works great. I have no complaints.

When I first bought this product I was quite taken with it. My creativity took different routes than it would have with standard or various open tunings due to different string lengths.. As a pro player of 40 plus years, I have a fairly nice collection of 20+ guitars. I began to use this on my favorite acoustic, a very old Taylor, I do some light guitar restoration, use my guitars with caution and take very good care of my instruments. Imagine my shock and disappointment when I took this device off my guitar after playing with it one day to find several deep gouges in the neck. The padding at each side of the capo had either slipped out of place or compressed over use enough to allow some metal parts of the capo to dig into the wood. A nice idea that needs work - enough so as to not damage fine, valuable vintage instruments. From now on I will stay with Kyser capos and trim the rubber in them to achieve the same result without permanently damaging my guitars. I would not recommend this unless you want to use it on a beater guitar that you don't care about.

Comments about Creative Tunings Universal Capo - SpiderCapo:

Place the SpiderCapo on the 2nd fret. Press the D, G and B strings down to make an A chord. All the fingerings for the chords G, C, F and D work (though they will be 1 step higher). All Barre Chords and lead links still work, and you can work the key of A in amazing ways. I have found incredible uses for the SpiderCapo.

    Comments about Creative Tunings Universal Capo - SpiderCapo:

    While the capo provides quick and interesting tuning options it isn't as versatile as I had hoped. No open E tuning here. I should have read the description more closely. Can only adjust one fret at a time.

      Great gift for someone who likes to play all different kinds of songs. I got this for my boyfriend and I wasn't sure if he had one already. Turns out he didn't and never knew this existed. He was so excited when he tried it out and heard the difference. I would highly recommend this Capo! I'm actually considering buying the XL one that covers more strings! Thanks Guitar Center for making my purchase experience an easy and stress free one!

      Comments about Creative Tunings Universal Capo - SpiderCapo:

      Great tool for not only going from standard tuning to alternate, but the reverse as well. With the flipping of a few "fingers" you can easily "re-tune" your guitar accordingly. Absolute genius device, especially when the "Harmonik Gloves" are added to it. Love this and will be advocating to all of my musician friends whenever and wherever possible.

      Awesome except a minor, minor problem

      Comments about Creative Tunings Universal Capo - SpiderCapo:

      This is an awesome product that I really needed and it works great but there is only one minor problem. The felt-like material used to hug the guitar neck slowly slides off after a lot of use. It is an easy fix to put back into place, but it is just annoying.

      Read Instructions

      By Isaiah George

      from Sherman, Texas

      Comments about Creative Tunings Universal Capo - SpiderCapo:

      Overall, great little capo that opens up tons of options. I read some reviews complaining of gouges in the neck of the guitar, well the capo has tabs that go over the top of the fretboard to secure the capo and like most guys i almost threw away the instructions, but first i looked at them. On the bottom in big red letters it basically says make sure you put the tabs on the fretboard or it will damage the neck of your guitar. So before you pass over this capo because of complaints of damage remember that reading the directions can be vital in the success of a product.

      Like open tunings? Here's the capo you've been waiting for!

      By Douglas Lichterman

      from St. Petersburg, FloridAa

      Comments about Creative Tunings Universal Capo - SpiderCapo:

      I love playing in open tunings. When I first discovered them as a teenager, I spent hours exploring them and I still do so today. Open tunings allow you to create chord voicings that are more mysterious and colorful than you can get with normal guitar tuning. But there are a couple of downsides to open tunings. For one thing, if you want to switch between normal tuning and open tuning you either need two instruments or take the time to re-tune your guitar between songs. Another problem is that if you re-tune your instrument frequently the strings stretch out and lose their vibrant sound. That?s why I?m excited about this new development in capos. The fine designers at Creative Tunings have given us the SpiderCapo, the first capo that allows you to capo each string individually. Think of the vast number of tunings that are possible when you multiply all the fret placements by all the combinations of strings capo?d or not capo?d?there are hundreds of them. The SpiderCapo also allows you to finger strings above and below the capo?awesome! What?s more, you can change the individual string settings while you?re playing. It makes your head spin with possibilities.

      Be Gentle

      By John Goossen

      Comments about Creative Tunings Universal Capo - SpiderCapo:

      Great Idea but needs improvement in construction and parts for better durability. Mine worked great for a short time but then the plastic tightening nut came apart from the threaded shank. I guess it couldn?t handle a little pressure. Metal glued to plastic never seems to hold well. It should be all one metal piece. I will try to glue it but remain disappointed. Be gentle.
