The Ultimate Capo Song List for Guitar Players

Years ago when I first starting playing guitar, I heard Hear Comes the Sun by the Beatles and was immediately hooked by the high-pitched beautifully sounding song.

I remember trying to figure the tune out by ear and having no idea how George Harrison played the song. When I finally figured out how he played it, I was hooked on the Capo and all the different tunes that were made specifically for and with the Capo.

Here's a list some classic tunes, some of my favorites, and some others have suggested make this list of songs with capo for guitar.

CURRENTLY, THERE ARE 156 SONGS IN THE LIST. LAST UPDATED NOVEMBER 22, 2017.
