Well I've tried and given up on playing the guitar a few times in the past couple of years. But every time I hear a song I like, it just mocks me and has determined me to not quit this time. I have a Rogue Dreadnaught RA-100D. It's a cheaper guitar but it has pretty good quality and sound. It's an acoustic steel string; I didn't think I should break the bank on a starter.
The times I gave up were when the chords got too hard for me, but I found out that a capo can make it a little easier on me. I went to Radio Shack today and got a strap, some new picks, and a capo. Well it turns out I got the wrong kind. The one I got is a Pistol Guitar Pro flat capo. I didn't even know that there was any difference in any capo other than brand. Apparently this one is for a flat fretboard like on a classical guitar. My guitar has a sort of curved fretboard. So apparently this one won't hold all of my strings down at the same tension and it is kind of small and tight on the neck (hard to move it up and down or get on and off). So I was wanting to know what any of you guys that know more about guitars and playing suggest to use. What is a good brand capo? And what style capo should I get? I assume the curved, but I also read when researching that some of the curved ones may not put enough tension on the middle strings.
Any suggestions and help on the capo are appreciated. Also, any help with beginner guitar playing are appreciated as well.
