What your capo says about you

Our friend Zach White has sent along another clever graphic he devised, picking up on a theme originated by Caroline Melby of Nash Street.

 

Zach said that anyone who wants to dispute these characterizations can catch him with Nash Street at the Full Moon Picking Party in Nashville on July 6.

Here he is on guitar with Nash Street performing at Music City Roots this past March.

    I couldn’t find a capo to fit my upright bass, so I decided to make one. Fortunately I found an old Gibson mandolin from the 1920s in the closet. Just the right size once I sanded off some of the pointy corners and bolted on a fastener.

      What is the IBMA Board of Directors’ stance on capos? THE MEMBERSHIP DEMANDS TO KNOW.

      • David Morris

        Sorry, Darren. Since you list playing keyboards in your profile, the bluegrass police won’t let me answer your question.

        • Darren Sullivan-Koch

          Yeah, I’m a regular Sally Ann Forrester. I am also prepared to release years of detailed financial records to support my decisions.
