Using a Capo

I am a bit confused ... I understand how to put the capo on and such. But I what about my fingering once I put the capo on? If its says (for example ... ) do I count from the first fret from the capo or the normal board?

Ah and where does it explain what hammer on and off means? I can finger the piano rif but only each individually ...

And what doesD(P) mean? The "Percussive stroke down" does not really tell me much.

I would like my guitar teacher to show up!

Amazingly I cannot seem to find a teacher in New York that either shows when we have a lesson or even calls that they are not make it.

Really fustrated, but I have gone through two attempts to find some in NYC ...

Me Too!

I am just getting fustrated. Its nice learning a scale, but some kind of song that I know and like would do wonders. I bought the Indigo Girls 'Strange Fire' book this week and I can't figure out what it is supposed to be saying. I listen to the music and don't recongize what happening compared to w...

Hi Day Tripper, I just bought a capo yesterday ... but it seems a really violent peace of machinery (smile). I cannot seem to open it enough to get it around the strings (the back of my fretboard is oval) ... so right no I am doing wrist workouts with it ... hopefully someday it will losen enough so...

Thanks Forrok_Star! I nowsee what you mean ... So effectively telling both form and fret in one. I just have to innately know the fingers for the cords. That is really useful, but I guess I am so used to looking at tabs for fingerings that it did not compute. Much appreciated (and I am sure there wi...

Some Quesitons from a Total Newbie!

Well ... have guitar in hand and obviously want to get going. I have some questions though. When it says "half measure" on a song - what does it mean? Also I want to learn the Indigo Girls "Hey Jesus" but don't totally understand the following G(Bb)* 3 2 0 0 2 2 C9(Eb9) x 3 2 0 2 2 Em9(Gm7) 0 2 2 0 ...
