    I just uploaded this video demonstrating how you can use a capo to make string changes easier, especially on a classical.

    Same principle will work on a mandolin or banjo with looped end strings that want to slide off their posts while you are working on the tuning peg end of the string. May come in handy for changing strings on a slot head as well.

    thanx for the tip...

    Someone showed me how to use a capo to adjust a Fender neck...the kind with the screw buried in the base of the neck under the pickguard.
