At last! Partial capo knowledge organized and assembled in one place... This book contains everything in the first 7 Capo Voodoo books, plus a lot more, in a hefty 600 information-packed pages. Partial capo pioneer Harvey Reid presents the 8th book in his series of Capo Voodoo books, with the fruits of over 35 years of his research. It carefully guides players of all levels through nearly 200 ways to use all types of partial capos, and should make it clear once and for all that the partial capo has substantial musical value and deserves to be a permanent and respected part of guitar. An epic achievement, The Big Book is the first exhaustive study of all current kinds of partial capos. It shows how to use them to reach a vast unknown world of new chords, scale patterns, voicings and resonances in the fingerboard. Reid takes you through a dizzying number of ways to use one or more partial capos in standard tuning, and combines them with 30 other tunings. Find new ways to finger familiar chords, learn new voicings of common chords, and explore a startling number of totally new sounds that have never been available to guitarists before. Partial capos are tricky to understand, and this book is the definitive manual for a remarkable but invisible musical “hyperspace” that only partial capos can unlock. It’s overflowing with chords, photos, diagrams, helpful musical advice, clear explanations and guitar strategy. Reid shows you, as only he can, how to find the music in this mysterious landscape of fresh guitar ideas.

About the Author:

Songwriter, guitar educator & multi-instrumentalist Harvey Reid has been called a "giant of the steel strings" and "one of the true treasures of American acoustic music." He has absorbed a vast repertoire of American contemporary and roots music and woven it into his own colorful, personal and distinctive style. His 28 recordings on Woodpecker Records showcase his mastery of many instruments and styles of acoustic music, from hip folk to slashing slide guitar blues to bluegrass, old-time, Celtic, ragtime, and even classical. Reid's skills and versatility on the guitar alone mark him as an important new voice in acoustic music. He won the 1981 National Fingerpicking Guitar Competition and the 1982 International Autoharp competition. Yet he's also a veteran musician with a long list of studio and band credits, a strong flatpicker, a versatile and engaging singer, a powerful lyricist, prolific composer, arranger and songwriter, a solid mandolin and bouzouki player, and a seasoned performer and captivating entertainer. And he plays the 6-string banjo and the autoharp like you've never heard. His Steel Drivin' Man CD was voted by Acoustic Guitar Magazine as one of the 10 Essential Folk CD's of all time, in company with Woody Guthrie, Joan Baez and other hallowed names. He has become a featured act at many of America's premier concert clubs and festivals, including Merlefest, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and the Walnut Valley Festival. Reid has also made his mark on the acoustic music world in other ways. He is responsible for most of what is known about the partial capo, developed all of the popular partial-capo configurations in use today, (including the Esus) was the first to record and publish music for partial capo. In 1980 he wrote the first college textbook for folk guitar.
