Have you ever wondered what "that thing" was on the guitar neck of your favorite player? Chances are you were wondering about the capo. A capo allows you to change keys of a song without changing the chord fingerings. When you use a capo, make sure the strings are not bent by the pressure of putting the capo onto the neck. There are many varieties of capos that clamp the neck in different ways. Some avoid bending the strings (thus putting your guitar out of tune) better than others. Find the capo that best suits your needs.

Try any open chord progression you've learned so far using a capo in many places on the neck to see how the capo effects the tone of your guitar.
