The barre is actually simply a text box across the frets. Just change its background and foreground colours and you're set!

Thanks to Alexandre Coimbra Veras for this idea :cool:

Great solution.

Looking forward to the CAPO capability.
Great for showing CAGED chords as used in songs with a CAPO

However, with hack, it i s difficult to reference notes that would be used as open string, close, but no cigar

A solution that I will go with is to create a new tuning based on where the capo would be ie 5th fret capo would be a tuning of:
A, D, G, C, E, A
