I wondered why James Taylor angled the capo that way until I tried it. It certainly does give me a bit of extra room there when my fingers get jammed against the capo doing some ridiculous chord one fret off. I suppose he adjusts his tuning to correct for whatever pull the capo has on the string. I'd always place the capo as much as I can on top of the fret w/o it damping the string.

I've finally gotten around to fixing the links to the sound samples I reference in my original post.

Taylor tuning – http://snd.sc/PILmoE

(I'm liking SoundCloud already. . .)

I honestly can't hear the difference. . .
