I've read through many forums and tutorials and am still very confused. I'll give an example to make this easier to understand: I'm trying to learn "Across the Universe" by Fiona Apple (https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/tab/fiona-apple/across-the-universe-chords-148212) and there are two chords (Fm & F) that require a capo. However, this would render the rest of the chords (C, Am, Em, Dm, G) different once I put the capo on the first fret.
Would I just play these chords on the 12th fret and end up with the same thing? Do I have to somehow take the capo off to play those chords normally? This has been really confusing and frustrating so if anyone could help I would really appreciate it. Thank you!!
