I know someone posted a thread asking about this. Well, the other day my little brother saw me playing my acoustic w/ a capo so he HAD to have one. So I looked around my room and found some stuff.

I was planning on using the black outer shell of the pencil untill I saw the white part inside. Then I cut it to size to match his fretboard, ran a piece of nylon string through it and tied a taught line hitch.


Then I just tightened it around the fret board.

Heres some pix.

thanks

And to the inevitable post of "why didnt you just go shell out the 5$"

Its because it was my little brother, who cant even fret a note(I'm trying to teach him but little kids are hard to work with) and he wanted it right then. He'll probibly lose intrest in it by tommorow.

I did that with a shoe string and some quarters once. Worked pretty well.

That's a rather nice homemade capo, i've never honestly seen one like that, usually people just use pencils and rubber bands.

lol it takes some practice. Just remember, two loops on the side towards the neck, one on the other side.
