Using a capo on your guitar.

A capo clamps over the finger board of your guitar just behind the chosen fret so that it raises the pitch of the open position chords.

 If you put the capo just behind the first fret then when you put the E major open chord shape on the fret board it gives you an F major chord.

This is really useful if you know the chords to a song but the key is too low for you to sing along with. Using the capo you can raise the key the song is in without changing the finger patterns of the chords you know.
