Glenn Jones

My name is Glenn Jones, I've been making my own partial capos for 30+ years, cutting up existing brands with hacksaws. I've recorded 15 albums, have written more songs using partial capos than otherwise. All of them are in open tunings, I haven't touched standard tuning in ages.


The capos I've made are "easy on / easy off" (mainly modified Shubbs and Dunlops), so that I can change them quickly in concert. I can switch capos in less than 10 seconds. How quickly can you take off and put on the Spider capo, and ditto changing the strings that are compressed?

I also play mainly 12-string. In your FAQ's you say "they've even been used on 12-strings" as though this were an unusual use for them, and indeed the fingers look as though they are designed to compress one string -- they're notched rather than flat. How easy is the Spider to use on 12-string guitars?

Love the capo. When are you coming out with a book of fun alt. tunings? Seems to me that would be the next logical step.
