Virtal Capo Advanced?
by citywalks on 2013-03-27 14:33:18

I am looking to use the virtal capo of the JTV-59 for a song that is in the tuning of C G D G B E and then capo on the 6th fret. Any Ideas on how to do this?

The tuning you want involves a change from standard tuning in only two strings: the 6th and 5th. The 6th (normally E) is tuned down four frets to C. The 5th (normally A) is tuned down two frets to G. Then the entire fretboard is tuned up 6 frets.

To use the JTV Virtual Capo to achive this you would engage the virtual capo and then set each string as follows:

6th: 14nd fret (down 4 frets from the 6th fret capo position)

5th: 16th fret (down 2 frets from the 6th fret capo position)

4th through 1st: 18th fret (the 6th fret capo position)

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
