Ben Ryan: I wanted to introduce myself, my name is Ben Ryan. I have invented a cool new musical device / instrument / innovation / invention. The device is based on the theory of using standard tuned guitars yet arriving at “open and alternative tunings” sounds. This enables the player to use standard chords, fingerings, scales and familiar progressions to arrive at new and unique "voicings" - It is truly revolutionary! In the next week, we will be launching a Kickstarter campaign and in the mean time one is able to sign up at our site for updates as well as view the video. I am very excited by the effort and I am hoping we can work together to spread the word far and wide! website: www.caposonic.com
Caposonic - the capo for every chord - announces today a new musical instrument and invention - The CapoSonic “Classic”. Similar to a regular capo which attaches to the neck of the guitar and presses the strings, the device enables you to make the “chord” of your choosing. It delivers a rich, full “Open” and “Alternative” sound for musical arrangements. The CapoSonic “Classic” allows the guitarist to play with the familiarity of “standard tuning”, using “regular” chords, “absolute” fret notes, normal scales and patterns, yet arrive at the richness of “OPEN TUNING” sounds with much sought after drone like qualities. Many accomplished professional musicians use “Open and Alternative” tunings for the unique sounds in their “hit” songs. “The guitar is at least 3,000 years old. There have been very few significant changes or improvements to this wonderful musical instrument, in the last 100 years with the exception of the introduction of electric guitars. CapoSonic’s expansion of a guitar’s musical capabilities is an exciting development that opens new horizons” says Ben Ryan, musician and CapoSonic designer. The CapoSonic “Classic” delivers a new level of performance and sound from chords never heard nor playable previously. As a result musicians experience a new “method” which reframes the way they play the guitar and create songs. CapoSonic Classic offers a much broader level of creativity for musicians.
Musicians across the country are experiencing a new level of enthusiasm resulting from the exploration, discovery and creation of unique musical arrangements using this new instrument. When it comes to sparking a new creative endeavor on the guitar for musicians, the new CapoSonic Classic deserves a standing ovation! The CapoSonic is simple to use and easy to become familiar with its many benefits. It can expand for multiple styles and genres, embellish arrangements, unique voicings, easy to “crossover”. It is easy and quick to attach and remove. CapoSonic reduces the need to retune for different songs or carry multiple guitars! This dynamic, “must have” instrument is revolutionary in concept, design and aesthetics. Not only does CapoSonic bring to the world a new musical device, using precision technology and state of the art manufacturing, it introduces a new and valuable “method” for teaching and learning the guitar.
With the growing interest and awareness of “Alternative and Open Tunings”, and the resurgence in the search for “unique voicing”, CapoSonic offers unique solutions. It enables guitar players opportunities for cool inversions, stacked chords, embellished “bell-like” qualities, and an exponential number of ways to breathe new life into the guitar. Not only is CapoSonic a new musical device and accessory, it is a new “Musical Concept and Method” - whose time has come! It opens one’s eyes and ears to recurring patterns on the neck of the guitar. It sounds fantastic and is fun to play. CapoSonic leverages the use of “CapoSonic Chords”, to a higher level - a completely unique and novel approach - which is available only by playing with the new CapoSonic device and methods.
CapoSonic is producing a KickStarter Online Video Campaign to launch in September 2012 to run for approximately 30 days.
