Learn your favorite songs without tabs or sheet music.
Whether you play for the world or yourself, all musicians need a good ear for harmony, melody, and rhythm. Using the songs in your music collection, Capo guesses the beats, chords, and key of songs to help you break them down to their individual parts. Capo’s unique technology helps you to learn your favorites quickly as you improve your ear along the way.
Capo is simple and yet so, so good, even the professionals use it:
“Capo is AMAZING!!! Very clutch. Especially when parts are kinda tough in the mix that I can’t make out easily. With other apps you lose quality, this still sounds correct.”
- Omar Edwards: Keyboardist/Music Director for Jay-Z, Rihanna, Kanye West, Eminem, and more
“When I sat down and started using Capo for the first time, I was amazed at how big a punch this little app packs! It's intuitive, convenient, and high-quality.”
- Rebecca Lovell: Lead Vocals, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin, Piano for Larkin Poe

*** HEAR THE SONG ***
Slow everything down, scrub to hear specific notes, and easily create regions that loop as you learn to play the tricky parts. Use Capo’s tools to isolate specific instruments and even vocals to learn any part of a song. With a couple simple switches, you can focus on the piano or eliminate everything to practice the guitar solo.
*** BREAK IT DOWN ***
Capo automatically guesses the beats, chords, and key of songs to get you started. Change, add, or remove the detected chords easily with a few taps as you identify alternate chords and voicings.
*** PAUSE THE SESSION ***
Capo saves each song as a project, including the loop regions you set, chord changes, and even the playback position. Learn songs at your own pace and revisit them on any device thanks to iCloud sync for your projects.

Ratings and Reviews
Master songs faster and build your repertoire.
Doesn’t work on Apple Music
I feel cheated in subscribing to Capo. I also subscribe to Apple Music, and now that is where my music comes from. I assumed Capo would make it easier for me to figure out chords to songs I want to learn, but after subscribing I learn you can’t access Apple Music songs, you have to buy them.
I guess I will just have to go back to figuring them out myself or going to the many internet sights available that show the lyrics and chords.
Capo certainly didn’t live up to the hype or my expectations
We're sorry to hear that you've had a disappointing experience with Capo touch. We tried to make it clear in the App Store description that you must purchase/own the songs that you wish to learn, but it's difficult to communicate why this is the case.
In a nutshell, Capo (or any other app) cannot access enough details of the song unless you own a DRM-free copy of it. Without this access, Capo cannot slow down playback, change the key, or perform its complex analysis of the song's audio.
We do our best to make it as easy as possible to "upgrade" your songs by buying them within the app, and many of our users appear to be enjoying this feature. Think of Apple Music as your "discovery" service for day-to-day listening, and then in the few cases where you want to get intimate with a particular track you just have to purchase one at a time.
Generally speaking, we spend a lot less money nowadays on our music because we're no longer buying many albums every month to keep up with what's new. Now we just buy a handful of songs once in a while whenever the inspiration strikes—and the plus side is that we'll always have a copy of the song available to us if we ever decide to stop subscribing in the future.
Please send us an email in support if you have any further questions, or would like to discuss this further. We hope you'll reconsider, and give Capo a chance!
9 out of 10 chords are wrong and you want us to pay money for it!?
What a scam
Sorry to hear you're having trouble with Capo's chord detection. We're always working to improve the performance of the chord detector, so we'd like to learn more about the song you're having trouble with.
Could you contact us in support with some more details about what song you're using, and let us know what chords Capo detected vs. the chords you expected to see?
We're looking forward to your email, and to making Capo even more amazing with your help. Thanks!
