Guitar Project

If you're a beginner that's bent on learning the guitar, that's absolutely great! Playing the guitar is a very enjoyable experience that can enrich your life in many ways.

Before you go out and start jamming with bands and promising your friends that you'll be singing at the camp fire, you're going to need some basic equipment. Here is a list of the basic things that every beginning guitar player should own.

1. You need a guitar. This one is obvious, but it needs to be said. You can't stand around telling everyone that you play the guitar when you don't even own one!

2. Get your instrument a case. Sometimes beginners learning guitar might overlook this piece of equipment, but owning a case is almost as vital as the instrument itself. A well-constructed case can save you hundreds of dollars in damage and grief when that first big accident comes.

3. Hold it up with a guitar strap. You don't want to be sitting down playing forever, so go out and shop for a strap to hold up your guitar. There are so many to choose from with a huge variety of colors, fabrics, and lengths.

4. Play through an amplifier. If you want to play live and share what you've learned as a beginner with an audience, you're going to need a guitar amplifier to project your sound. If you want an amp for practice reasons, stick with a 15 watt version, but if you want to play live, pick something with at least 90 watts.

5. You'll need cables to hook up to the amp. So you have the guitar amp, but you can't plug in without some good cables! Order some semi-long quarter-inch cables to hook up to your amplifier. Make sure you purchase extras when the first batch goes bad right in the middle of a performance.

6. Keep that guitar in tune with a tuner. You need your strings to stay in tune when you're playing and the best way to keep that in check is with an electronic tuner. Go to your local music store and check out tuners that can hook right up to your amplifier as a pedal for tuning live on the go.

These are just some of the very basic things that a beginner learning guitar should own. Remember that things will wear and break and it's always a good idea to have back-ups of your equipment and gear.
