Make-it-yourself guitar accessories



video here

Make your own guitar mute, pick holder, slide, capo, and guitar picks.

I was looking on the net for instructions to make a guitar strap, and found this on one of the pages that gave such instructions.

On the subject of a pick holder: one of the guitarists I know taught me to just double a wide rubber band on the head, at the top, so that it is a little bit away from the tuning area, and then slip picks under the rubber band. The stretch of the rubber keeps it tight and the non-slip properties of rubber make it unlikely that the pick will slide out.

on the subject of a home-made guitar strap



Several web sites suggest starting with a belt. I'm wondering how large (how long) a belt I will need. Leigh or JL might have an idea.

I find that, at the thrift stores, there are many belts for thinner people, but few for the average later-life over-fed well-fed American. I have the impression that people outgrow their belts as their metabolism changes in later later life, and they wind up in the donations. Up to 34 inches or so, there are many choices. But, 38 inches and up? They are harder to find.
