    Thanks! Just gotta get some pens made for someone, then I can try to focus more on playing and writing.

    You mean you have to make the pens before you can write the song? :eek:

    I'm pretty sure you can buy a pen for like a dollar. Maybe less. Hey go to a bank and steal one off the little chain.

    A friend's mom asked me to make her 21 so she can give them out to her co-workers for Christmas presents. I don't think she wants the bank kind. :)

    I have 12 done, hoping to do about 4 more today and finish them up by next weekend.

    Here are some of the pens.

    Also, it's been a really long time since I've played guitar or written anything on one, so it might take a while.

    How long does it usually take you to make a pen?

    Anyway, an old song will be fine to demo your guitars! Unless, of course, you don't want them learning too much old stuff. :lol:

    About an hour each after the brass tubes are glued in and dried. I'm just trying to do it on non-work days when it's not below 30°.

    Old songs would work fine for the fretted guitar, but not as much for the fretless. :-/
