Put your pencil on the fret you want. In this case I needed to put it on the third fret. Take your rubber band and do like in this video. You may need a few rubber band.

I used about 15 rubber bands. But that depends on how elastic your rubber bands are. The pencil should sit tight on the strings.

This actually works pretty well. But I suggest that you buy a capo. They are very necessary and you can find them at ebay or so, they arent so expensive. Good luck!
