What's the right way to pronounce "capo"?

I've been playing for 6 years now and I still dont know.

Is it ca-po? (like the 'a' sounds in "cat")

is it cah-po? (like the 'a' sounds in "car")

is it cay-po?

none of the above?

    Besides, I learned how to say capo, as did many other people I'm sure. It cetainly beats posting a drawing of a dog that your autistic girlfriend Julie drew for you.

    Okay now this one I've heard a million times and still do not know the answer....how do you pronounce "piezo"?

    Is it:

    pie-zo

    or

    pee-ay-zo

    I always thought it was the latter.

    If you speak the proper English language, it's Cap-o, not cay-po. Because Americans fiddle with our beautiful language, they like to adapt things though
