I know you can get records when a creeper is killed by a skeleton, but I can't figure out how to detain them & line up the spawners so the skeletons shoot them. Anyone had any success in this?

It's always been more of a luck thing for me. Just find a creeper and a skelly near each other, have the creeper chase you, and hope the skeleton can keep up...

trick a skele and a creeper so they fall in a small hole they cant jump out of. Then wound the creeper (2 hits with iron sword i think, so the skele will one hit) then, make a 1x1 tower so you are above the hole, wait for the skele to shoot, then move out of the way. The arrow will fall back down. BOOOM! Record.

Yeah, the problem is that the creepers move really fast, & the skeletons are really stupid, getting stuck on trees & such. I rigged up something once & was able to finally get one record, but it was after being blown up & shot several times. There's gotta be a better way.

Ok Kyle, here's what you do. You find a Creeper, who'll be named Vincent. Then you stand a safe distance away from Vincent, and call out "Hey Vincey! I overheard Skelly Stewie calling your mother 'explosive in bed'!" Now he'll be pretty furious, as he's very sensitive about his mother, and so you'll want to be a good couple of meters away. He'll go over to Stewie's house. Follow behind, but not too close. He'll knock on the door, and demand to see Stewie. However, Stanford, Stewie's brother, will probably answer the door, as he's a bit faster, and his room is closer to the entrance. He'll see Vincent's anger, and will inadvertently try to calm him down, by reassuring him that Stewie wouldn't insult his mother. But Vincent won't hear any of that shit, and so he'll demand a fight. Stanford is very defendant of his families honor, so he'll respect the demand. They'll both bring down their posses, and will have it out in the nearby desert flat, while the Endermen stand back and watch. You'll want to keep the fuck away for a while. After you feel a safe amount of time has passed, revisit the now barren and crater-filled desert. Hop around in the destroyed ecosystem, amongst the remains of two honorable and worthy families, amongst the rotting corpses of fallen warriors, struck down in battle, their skin warped by the heat of the explosions. What have you done Kyle? Was it worth it?

On YouTube, there's a great user named "TheMinecraftMuse." He made a video recently on a "record studio" that appears to work very well. You should check it out (sorry there's no link, I'll edit this later with one).

Try making one of these, then find a way to open the door behind the creeper (it will still try to walk towards you), then have a skeleton try shooting you while you pass back and forth with the trap between you and the skeleton. I have no idea if it works, but I thought it up in a matter of seconds, and I don't feel like seriously experimenting right now...

My tactics, (full double-chest of discs and counting btw) 1. hit a creeper twice with an iron sword. 2. have it follow you like a puppy until you find a Skeleton (make sure to bring armor you will get smacked a coupe times) 3. Then you just run circles around the skeleton if you haven't lost the creeper. 4. eventually the Skeleton will be dumb enough and be in perfect alignment with the creeper. 5.????? 6.Profit! (Also as apose to the iron sword also if you have one bring a diamond to fend off other creepers. zombies, spiders ect.  :Skeleton: + :SSSS: = :iapprove:
I think of Christmas as a happy time, It's the only time of the year when every man and woman sees each other as equals. Even if it hasn't put any gold or silver in my pockets I say it has done me good and will do me good and there for I say god bless it! ~Scrooge's Nephew.

I use a bow on the creeper, one fully-charged shot, one half-charged shot, and walk in front of a skeleton.  It usually works.

Try digging a pit (at least 3 blocks deep) and lure in a creeper and skeleton.

I agree. Just go find a dungeon and I think it will be easier and less frustrating than letting the creeper and skeleton fight. Found 2 music discs recently in a chest.

I believe I saw a video where someone made it so only creepers would go into one area and only skeletons into another, and it was like the first video to kill the creeper. Now that I am thinking, I believe it was a monster trap, and all the monsters were above him, and he somehow got it so he could get creepers into one area and just try to get a skelly into another and have them fall and idk. Lol. try to find it :)
