Simply clip the tuner onto the headstock of your guitar, and you’re good to go forth and tune.

You’ll love: the bright colour display which makes it easy for you to see when your guitar is flat, sharp, or beautifully in tune

2. Guitar Capo

You’re all strung up and in tune – now it’s time to play! Say you are a beginner guitar player and only know a few chords like GEmC, and D, but the song you’re wanting to learn has the chords AF#mD, and E. What is this F#m junk? I don’t know barre chords yet! In comes the capo. For those that don’t know, a capo can be placed on any fret of the guitar to help you easily transpose a song which makes it easier to play many songs while still using the chord shapes you’re used to.

3. Guitar Picks

One of the most essential guitar accessories out there – the pick! That is, if you plan on doing any strumming or picking which we’re guessing you will. We shouldn’t have to explain a whole lot about picks other than the fact that picks can be made out of a number of different materials and are different thicknesses. What material you prefer or how thick the pick you play with is up to you. However, if you plan on doing a lot of strumming only, you’ll want to go with a thinner pick (it flexes more and makes strumming easier, we recommend our M thickness). If you plan on doing more single note picking for solo stuff, you’ll probably want a slightly thicker pick because they are more stiff and make it easier to pick each individual string(We prefer our H thickness)

4. Guitar Pickbox

Say you have a bunch of picks lying around… where are you going to put them? We can’t start to tell you how many picks people lose everyday!. This is why you should have a pick holder! Pick holders are very inexpensive and will pay for themselves by keeping track of your picks so you don’t need to always go out and buy new ones. The pick holder will hold probably around 5-10 picks depending on how thick the picks are. The nice thing about our pick holders is they have a little piece of adhesive on the backside of them so that you could stick the pick holder right onto your guitar and grab picks whenever you need as you’re playing!

5. Guitar Stand

Every person who owns a guitar needs some place to put it! Now, if you have a case, you may very well just put your guitar in your case and set it up against a wall or tuck it under the bed. However, if you play your guitar every day, it can be a hassle to put it in and take it out of your case every time. Also, if you play on stage ever, you’re going to want a guitar stand to hold your guitar for easy access to it. Guitar stands are a great accessory for your guitar and can help prevent your guitar from falling over and getting damaged if you’re used to just setting your guitar against a wall with nothing to hold it upright (never a good idea!).

6. Guitar Strap

If you plan on standing up while playing your guitar ever, then add a guitar strap to your list of must-have guitar accessories. A strap will be able to hold your guitar up while you play and they are also adjustable so you can have your guitar hang at whatever height you prefer.

7. Padded Guitar Bag

A good padded guitar bag protects your guitar from scratches and bumps and makes it a lot easier to carry around safely. Our Padded bag comes with two Backstraps which makes it really comfortable to carry around as a backpack.

8. Extra Strings
