Here are some suggestions If you’re searching for some ideas for christmas or birthday presents for someone who is learning the guitar.
Strings come in different thickness or ‘gauges’. There are extra light, light, medium and heavy. Nylon strings are measured in ‘tension’; low, medium and high.
Here are some extras they might need:
Music Stand: one of the most important extras.
Music Book Bag or Folder: keeps all the music charts together
Guitar Stand: prevents it getting knocked over. There is also a wall mounting type for easier storage if your home is less than palatial.
Footstool: essential for classic guitar but also helpful for others
Strap: a wider type is recommended for the heavier electric guitars
Capo: there are elastic types or quick moving spring types
Plectrums: they come in a variety of shapes and thickness. Iit’s good to have a variety.
Tuner: another important extra as is a Metronome: some models combine a tuner and metronome
Music Books/DVDs: books for tuition and his/her favourite Artist/band, general collections
A Magazine subscription is another option: Guitarist, Guitar Techniques and Total Guitar are good choices.
