3/4 guitar
« on: September 02, 2018, 05:11:20 pm »
I work abroad so travel a lot so bought a 3/4 guitar to learn on as I can fit it in aeroplane overhead lockers.
I bought Justin guitar learner course and song book which I’m enjoying only over a week into the course and I’ve learned 2 songs that I can play badly.
Question
I’ve tried to learn a new song hound dog. The book says capo 3rd fret but the guitar doesn’t sound right is the capo position on a 3/4 guitar the same as a full size guitar or would you use a different fret for the capo on a 3/4.

Regards
Wayne

I don't know anything about 3/4 guitars but I would think the capo position wouldn't change from a full size. Did you ensure your guitar is tuned properly?

Some smaller sized guitars may be tuned higher. like G to G instead of E to E. Most of them probably aren't, however.
Guitar, banjo, mandolin and piano, bass and percussion only when needed

Guitar is tuned maybe its just me but notes dont sound as in video as long as I know i'm playing on the right fret i'll keep plugging away. Maybe the sound difference is because its a 3/4 and not full size as is being played in video thanks for help.
