Always place the capo a bit behind the fret and fasten it on the guitar tightly. Never slide the capo from fret to fret with out loosening it as this can scratch the guitar neck. Check your tuning after the capo is placed on the guitar neck. If a string should go sharp loosen it at the peg and tug on the other side of the capo then tune the string up to pitch. If the strings are flat, carefully tune them up to pitch in the new key. Go up five frets from the capo and check your tuning in the traditional way.
