Homemade Guitar Capo (March 2007)

Soon after I bought my guitar, I found I needed a capo to play a few songs. Being too cheap and lazy to go buy one, I headed to my work shop and whipped up my own in about 10 minutes. It's just a piece of scrap pine wrapped in electrical tape that I cut to match the neck of my guitar. There's a straight strip of wood on the top that clamps the strings when you tighten two nuts. It looks pretty bad and is a pain to use, but it did the job for nearly a year. I've since bought a proper capo once I got around to it. ;D
