Apparently I stashed it somewhere I haven't looked yet...
On my hair. I've got so many it looks like dreads
For my Tele, I don’t use one, for my 1967 Guild D-40 a Shubb capo in my left pocket.
I've only ever kept mine behind the counter at the guitars store... because I have never bought or used one, LOL... BARRE CHORDS... BARRE CHORDS... hahahahaha
I have a Kayser and there’s plenty of room on the headstock or in the case.
My method also. There is room above the music binder to clip the capo and a clip on tuner.
First of all I have more than 1 cause i am constantly losing stuff. I use a 5 string shubb capo because i play a lot in drop d tuning capo'd to e. For gigging i keep a Shure mic bag in my case with a couple of capos, picks, spare tuner. It just stays there. At gigs i just set them on the back of the amp. For home i just keep a few laying around the furniture. My wife plays too so she doesn't care.
I'm a bluegrass guy, so I am used to storing my cradle/c-clamp style capo on the nut -- I'm a big fan of D'Addario's NS design capos these days, btw. Especially since they've refined the design to be slimmer over the years.
If I use a capo on electric guitar outside of the studio it's most often on RIC 12-string, in which case I have a Kyser with an extra strong spring. I won't store it on the headstock, though...just too unsightly, sticking off the guitar like a bent car antenna or curb feeler or something. I'd rather clamp it to the mic stand, or if the gig allows on a small platform where I also place thumbpicks, capos, slides, et.al.
I know, form over function, but there you go
I KNOW I've got 2 of them, but WHERE are they? Not a clue...
Tele' headstock is an issue, but do-able. Best place for it to be apart from 2nd fret...headstock totally. Another tip, get a pick holder for your picks, I've paid for my pick holders 20 time over in not having the 'where's my pick?' thing. A capo for each guitar helps too...
I use Shubb capos on all my guitars. Cowboy open chords anywhere on the neck with a capo have a sound that can't be duplicated with Barr chords IMO. At gigs, I keep one in my left pocket and one on top of my amp.
I usually put mine on top of the amp or on the corner of my keyboard. Together with my slide and some extra picks.
Better to never use one!
I keep one in my music room and one in my gig bag. Always have one with me...and almost never use it, lol
I keep one (maybe 2) in my box of guitar tools. Setting up a guitar is the only time I use it.
Dunlop makes a hook for your slide that clips to your mike stand. I hang my capo there, too. Home or gig, works well.
In Jersey City.
