New to forum When playing with capo. Using g major scale 1 2 and 3. If you move capo to 2nd fret to play key A and move up 2frets play g major scale pattern 2 would you still be in key A?

If you're in the key of A, you're always in the key of A. If you're in the key of G, you're always in the key of G. The capo doesn't changes which actual notes you're playing. It only changes the open notes, because the capo frets all the strings.
