BLACK DROP D
Many songs today are written with chord progressions like E, F#m, A, B or G, D, Em, C. The Kyser Short-Cut makes those simple progressions even EASIER to play. The Kyser Short-Cut takes your mind off the chord changes and allows you more freedom when playing your guitar. It also allows you to “hammer on” and create new rhythms.
The Short-Cut can easily create a DADGAD-like sound, without retuning. To do so, just place the Kyser Short-Cut on the 2nd fret from the top to cover the 5th, 4th, and 3rd strings.
To play in a different key, you can use a 2nd capo closer to the headstock than the Kyser Short-Cut. For example, place a capo covering all 6 strings on the 3rd fret and the Kyser Short-Cut on the 5th fret to play in the key of G.
The Kyser Short-Cut can be used on any fret, in standard or inverted position.
The Kyser® Drop-D
The Kyser® Drop-D Quick-Change™ is a tool for creative exploring. With it, you can get new, richer sounds from your guitar without having to relearn how to play the chords you already know.
Place the Drop-D on the 2nd fret, and play a triangular-shaped D chord. Normally, you'd only play the high 4 strings, but now you can play all 6. Because the Kyser Drop-D is in the second fret, you're hearing an E chord - and the low string is an E, too. It sounds like Drop-D tuning!
Now play a normal G chord. It'll sound just like it always did. If you retune, you change the fingering. With the Drop-D, the fingering stays the same, except if you want to play on the low E string. Play an E minor chord. Because the low string is open, you'll need to fret the low E string on the same fret as the capo, either below or above it.
The Kyser® Drop-D can be used on any fret, in standard or inverted position.
