I want to buy a capo... What is the difference between a flat and a curved capo? Can I use either for both an electric and acoustic guitar?
Not much. If it is curved too much then obviously it won't work as well on a flat neck. A curved capo is going to work better on low radius necks such as a strat and only near the nut.
Get a flat one and you shouldn't have any issues.
Required, but never shown
