    A capo is a nice tool to allow you to use those same open possition chords anywhere on the neck.

    The fact is: you can play in any key, in any position on the neck. Some of those chord forms may be a bit unwieldly and don't always sound the best but, technically speaking, it's true.

    Brent, if you know how to spell, (build) chords and scales, you'll have no reason to ask this question. If you don't know how to construct these things, then focus your energy learning these basics. There are a number of articles here and elsewhere on the web that can help you with that.
    Having seen your recent flurry of posts, as well as those over the year(s) I find it very strange that you would be asking this question, at this point in time.

    What KEYS can u get with the Capo at the 1st fret?

    It ""revoices"" the chords in a different way using the capo on the 1st fret?

    What KEYS can u get with the Capo at the 2nd fret?

    It ""revoices"" the chords in a different way using the capo on the 2nd fret?

    example: Cmajor,Amin,Dmajor,Gmaj,Amaj,Emin,Emaj they sound different
    Because of the ""Voicing"" using the capo on the 2nd fret


    Where is there a Chart about the KEYS or transposing with using a CAPO?

    Malcolm put up a link to a fine chart, you will need to be able to construct chords, (ie: use notes) to use it.

    To tell you that a capo at a specific fret gives you access to only "said keys" is wrong,......
    .....but,........
    If you move your "D" chord form up one fret,....what do you get ??

    learn where the notes are on a fretboard or how to locate, or count em, and where the root notes in the chords you know are located... then you will know what chords are you playing when using the capo at any fret..

    What do you mean they sound different?

    Do the major chords change to minor?
    Do the minor chords change to diminished?
    Do the diminished chords change to double diminished?

    What is a "voicing"

    What do you mean by capo? Is this some neo-classic technique?

    How does a capo do? Who can I learn this teachnique? Where are some neo-classic songs that show this capo technique? Does they come in fushia? Where does the term "capo" come from? Is capo an arabian technique? Can I use "capo" to make chromatic notes to consonant. Will "capo" help me get cute chicks? I read all the hot chicks like middle-eastern music. Where can I hear "capo" to play middle-eastern music?

    Brent, you're lucky the folks at IBM are such nice guys. Other internet forums would have banned you right after your second "is X better than Y / is Y better than Z / Is Z better than A" rambling.
