I haven't played with the music skills in a long time so i'm not sure if this is entirely a new issue or what is going on. 

my sim can't seem to finish writing songs using the guitar. I have to test the other instruments, but i've tried multiple types of music and its not finishing the action. 

When i have my sim do this action, they just continue writing after the bar/circle has filled up and never finish the action.

I have no mods or CC installed. 

I saw a previous thread saying the issue can be caused by having the guitar in the inventory but it doesn't work either way, starting the action while its on the floor or in the inventory

Re: BUG: Sims aren't able to finish writing a song

Sims should now actually be able to finish writing songs. Perhaps those of us with closets full of unfinished projects should take notes.

Fixed in Patch 1.103.250/1.84

Please create a new thread if you're still experiencing this issue,

Re: Can't finish writing songs on guitar

@crzykillerr1 Since there was another similar report I decided to test this on my Sim and he finished writing his song fine.

Could you also test another Sim ?

Sims 4 Write Songs not completing

★★★ Novice

I can’t seem to get my sim to complete writing a song on the piano. I go into her inventory, click “Resume a lively tune” and then she works on it. The progress bar is at 100% (the circle is completely green) and she just keeps playing, it doesn’t get completed. What can I do to fix this?

@verbosevixen77 I merged your post with another report on this.

Did you test multiple Sims or just one ?

I'm just trying to submit a potential bug, but as usual EA's incompetence has made it more difficult than it should be. Here's the bug: my sim attempts to write a song using the guitar, the task fills completely but never actually ends. To be explain in even more simple terms: sim starts write song, action bar shows progress with green loop, loop fills completely, even though loop fully green action never ends, if cancel action, task incomplete. Is that dumbed up enough for you EA?

Sim never finishes writing a song - writes forever

★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? Unknown
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Compose a song
What happens when the bug occurs? Sim is directed to compose a song on the digital keyboard and never finishes, she continues indefinitely. The keyboard has never been in her inventory, I have chosen the option to complete sheet music in her inventory if the song is incomplete after the first attempt to write it because she stops to meet a need, I have even cheated her needs to green and tried to write the song in one go. No matter what I try she NEVER finishes the song, the progress bar will be completely full and she will just continues the action until she needs something or she is directed to do otherwise.
What do you expect to see? I expect the song to be completed and be placed in her inventory to license after the progress bar is full
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I'm not completely certain how often it happens or after what patch it began happening because I don't frequently play musicians but it happens every time I direct my sim to write a song.
