Gman,

Thanks for taking the time to put together your terrific website. I've just spent 1/2 hour looking at every nook & cranny. As a singer/songwriter I really enjoy using alternate tunings for that "different" sound they give, but I'm a lazy tuner. I ended up purchasing a Shubb partial capo that covers the 3rd, 4th & 5th strings only. It allows for some really neat sounds without taking time to retune the strings. Some minor tweaking might be needed if the guitar's intonation is not perfect, but it's still easier than trying to tune and chat (on stage) between songs. I'm a big fan of Christopher Williams and I noticed his partial capo during a coffeehouse performance. It has opened a whole new world for me. I also use a modified Dunlop (cut off so the capo only covers the 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6t strings) that works really well. And I purchased a Keyser Drop D capo.
 
Thanks again for all your tips,
