This tutorial isn’t for people who never played the guitar before. You at least need to learn the basic chords, switching between chords, strumming the guitar, and the basic anatomy of the guitar.

This tutorial is for those who are friendly with the guitar and has been playing it for 1-2 months at least. With that being said, this is also for those who have good knowledge of guitar and can play it well enough.

Tutorial for Go Flex on Guitar [With Capo]

Now, we will learn about how we can play the song with a capo. This is to eliminate some of the harder chords like the B-flat or Bb and the F Major or the F chord. There are 3 ways in which you can place the Capo to play the song.

Now when you place the Capo, all of the chords that you would’ve played without a capo will be changed. So for example, if you have a capo on the first fret, the B-flat will be changed into an A Major, and C Major will be converted to a B Major, and so on.

Capo on First Fret

For this, the chords will be changed to,

F Major [F] - E Major [E]

A minor [Am] - G Sharp [G#]

B-Flat [Bb] - A Major [A]

C Major [C] - B Major [B]

D Major [D] - C Sharp minor [C#m]

Capo on Third Fret

For this, the chords will be changed to,

F Major [F] - D Major [D]

A minor [Am] - F Sharp [F#]

B-Flat [Bb] - G Major [G]

C Major [C] - A Major [A]

D Major [D] - B minor [Bm]

Capo on Fifth Fret

For this, the chords will be changed to,

F Major [F] - C Major [C]

A minor [Am] - E Major [E]

B-Flat [Bb] - F Major [F]

C Major [C] - G Major [G]
