    A pencil stub and a rubber band works for me. Use a sturdy rubber band, you have to wrap it pretty tight. I hardly ever use a capo anyway.
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.

    Hehe, what's the fun in that? You can't use hours on end on the internet and discuss on a forum which pencil is best

    In considering the idea of the spring style going sharp, I looked around for a type like the D'Addario and found a banjo Victor Bronze Capo DUN_DCV-50F by Dunlop that has the screw more out of the way, so I ordered it.

    Clearly you've never been on an art forum. But of course it's been discussed as far back as Shakespeare: "2B, or not 2B, that is the question."

    I have a dulcimer capo that I've been using for 30 some odd years. It's made of a chopstick and an elastic. I've had to replace the elastic a few times, but the chopstick is the same one I started using decades ago. One of my students gave me a store bought dulcimer capo, but I prefer the homemade one.
