Cool, cool. Thanks for the confirmation. I hope I can find a capo that works nice with 11/12 gauge strings.

Please don't be wasting our time.
I was just clarifying, I've never owned a capo. And I didn't know the things I do now when I posted the question, I've done a bit of research into it now, but most of the examples given were for tunings I've never used and aren't interested in using. So I still needed clarification.

I don't mean to waste time.

it's all good haha like the difference between to-may-to and to-mah-to so long as everyone is on the same page it doesn't matter what font the information is written in.

I think most people call it Eb. Its not uncommon. SRV and Hendrix both used it a lot. I cant name them all but I know many prominent blues guitarists also used it because it gave them a little more lower end.

That is weird why that would confuse people, I always though going down was flat, up was sharp.

If I work with female artists that play in a lot of strange keys I will detune to Eb to make my life easier, also the bluegrass concept of capo on 2 and play A as a G shape gives a lot of punch to the guitar
