Hello fellow guitar player! My name is Tom and welcome to Cool Capo Designs, home to any capo you would ever want, and more!
Where it all began
I have been playing the guitar for the most part of my life. It all started with a fantasy when I was no older than 6. I remember it clearly, we were on a family holiday in France driving through the mountains, and I was sat by myself in the car boot (with an open-top) with the Beatles playing loudly on the CD player. I was in my own world, and I could imagine so vividly being on stage, with a guitar, playing all these songs like a rockstar. From that moment I knew that I wanted to play the guitar, but had no idea how my journey would pan out.
My mother very kindly found me a teacher, and made me go to lessons every week, which was a very disappointing experience for me, and probably my least favourite hour of the whole week, which subsequently made me never want to play the guitar again!
A good 5 years passed, and I went to high school where I got reconnected with a passion of performing music as there were many like minded and talented young musicians there. Singers, pianists, guitar players, the lot! And so many facilities and opportunities to grow and play.
With this newly found passion I found myself another teacher and he taught me all the necessary skills I need, to go out and play to audiences and how to grow on my own. And that’s what I did. Ever since I have continued to grow, and met some incredible people along the way.
Now I want to help people find their passion in music, and make it their own so they have equipment they can be proud of and inspire to learn and play new things, and meet some awesome people that will rock your world, and change it forever.
Find your sound
I don’t know about you, but I have played on many guitars, with many different capos. And for some reason, it changes the whole playing experience. The way you put the capo on the neck, the way it sounds, the way your hand feels when you’re playing a chord, and the way you feel about it all adds to your personal style and way of playing.
I know I have that special capo I feel very connected to. If you don’t know, you haven’t found it yet.
I want to connect you with a special capo that you can be proud of. That losing it would be very upsetting, and playing with it would be very satisfying. There is a whole world out there full of opportunities and experiences. All you have to do is be in alignment, and let the natural flow of life take you to where you need to be. Don’t play when things feel jaggered and hard because it will cloud your judgment and potential, but play with things that speak to you.
… man… I didn’t think I’d be so spiritual about this!
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
