I don't write in any specific way. I could come up with something while I'm just practicing, jamming with my bandmates, or (for example) playing on a friend's crappy acoustic. Lol.

I've never written on a guitar before. Sharpie would probably be best though.

When you

When you write on a electric guitar do you do it unplugged or in a amp?

I tend to use a notebook instead, it's much easier to carry around.

Most of the time i write unplugged, partly because when i write, i can't be bothered to go grab a lead and all that, it sounds lazy, but when i write, i just want to get down to it. Also, if it sounds good completely unplugged, chances are it will sound better amplified, whereas composing with shit loads of distortion or something kind of limits what sounds good.

I use my acoustic when I write, and transfer to electric later.

Mostly 'cause when I'm at home, I prefer playing my acoustic.

The only times I write with my electric is at rehearsals, so I'd say plugged. but it's pretty rare.

It depends. The best stuff I write when I have no intention to write, so it can happen any time I'm holding a guitar. Should it be plugged in, unplugged, or wherever. Sometimes I'll come up with stuff in my head spontaneously.

When it's acoustic, obviously I keep it unplugged (and I don't own any electroacoustics). Electric, however, I play both plugged and unplugged.

It doesn't matter how much you beg, you'll still be wrong.

EDIT: I actually come up with most of it in my head, and then play it out plugged in when I get the chance. I'm not sure how this method has worked for so long, but it has.
