Another important thing to have is a good strap. This is especially important if you will be standing up to play, but it also keeps the guitar stable and easier to play. Along with this is strap locks, again, very important as you don’t want your guitar to fall off the strap and break. These are super cheap but can help you avoid potential disaster and a costly fix to your instrument.
Finger picks are something every guitarist needs. The experts say to start with the thinnest you can find and gradually work your way up to determine the one that you like the best. Picks can break so it’s always a good thing to have plenty on hand and hey, when you’re famous you can throw them to the crowd after a show, so make sure you have extras!
A tuner is a great thing for beginner guitarists to have as it makes your guitar play in tune as opposed to sounding terrible. A tuner sits on the neck of your guitar and tunes your strings so that you always sound great. Another thing that attaches to the neck of your guitar is a capo and it is used to change the pitch of open strings. It changes the key and is a great help especially if you are singing as well as playing. Always stay in key and in pitch.
A music stand is something that is a must for even the beginning guitarist as it stops you craning your neck to see the music and then look at your fingers. If you are sitting looking straight ahead at your music your body is more aligned and you will be more comfortable as you learn to play.
