Using a capo for me is in order to have a different sound. That can be a source of inspiration when composing music. Way up the neck the guitar can sound music box like. Some tunes sound better with mellow low tones, for other tunes it sounds better with every note in the high register. Rarely I might capo a couple of frets just to make a particular stretchy chord more doable.
