    I've seen in a couple of random vids people having a sweatband looking thing between the nut and the tuners. I have no idea what it does or what it's called but I want to find out. My guess is that it acts like a capo on the strings - But behind the nut so-as to raise the pitch of the entire guitar without sacrificing frets like a conventional capo?!

    Anyone know what I'm trying to refer to :?:

    It either stops sympathetic vibrations north of the nut, or they slip it over to the other side of the nut for when they want to play further up the neck without open strings ringing. I dunno what youd call it besides a hair tie. IME
