Are all guitar scales movable?

The guitar is a very unique instrument due to its “movable” nature. Essentially what this means is that once you learn one “scale pattern” or “chord shape” in just one single key, you can then move that pattern to any other area of the fretboard in order to play in other keys.

What Capo is key of D?

To play in the key of D with the 'C shape,' you'd want to capo your guitar on the second fret. Each fret represents a half step and there are two half steps from C to D (so if you capoed on the first fret you'd be playing in C# with the 'C shape').

What key is a guitar in?

The guitar doesn't exactly have a single key that its "in". Instead it has chords that are easier and more difficult to play. Some relatively easy ones (sticking with just major chords) include C, G, D, A, and E, which allows you to play in quite a few different keys.
