Before you start playing, it’s a good idea to get some quality guitar accessories.
You have your guitar and you’re ready to get all of the accessories that you’ll need to learn. Here are some of the guitar accessories that I like.
First of all, a good solid case is definitely a must have for anyone who plans on taking their guitar on any adventures. Something like the ChromaCast CC-EHC Electric Guitar Hard Case would be great. Or, perhaps, the ChromaCast Acoustic Guitar 6-Pocket Padded Gig Bag if you prefer a soft case (in addition, it comes with a pick!).
Changing your strings as needed is a good idea, when you are beginning it will help you to learn the correct sounds and notes. Swapping strings out is quick and easy if you have the Planet Waves Pro Winder String Winder and Cutter. As far as new strings go, I prefer using either the Ernie Ball Regular Slinky Nickel Wound Set or D’Addario EJ16-3D Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings for a nice fresh sound.
When you’re starting off a tuner can be a huge help in knowing when it’s time to switch your strings out. Therefore, it is important that you go with a good reliable one like the Snark SN-5 Tuner for Guitar, Bass and Violin. A good tuner will help you keep your guitar in tune and allow you to hear what each note is supposed to sound like.
Check out my review of the Roadie 2 Tuner.
Having an ample amount of picks wouldn’t hurt either. You can find D’Addario Assorted Pearl Celluloid Guitar Picks in packs of 10 to at least get started.
Another thing to keep in mind is how you plan on storing your guitar. There are some different ways you can go if you’re thinking of keeping it out on display. If you don’t want to spend a fortune on a custom glass case, the On Stage XCG4 Black Tripod Guitar Stand is a great floor stand that you can strap your guitar into for extra protection. Maybe you would rather get it up off the ground. The String Swing CC01KOAK Hardwood Home & Studio Guitar Hangeris a clean way to do it.
Finally, for the electric guitar players out there a good amp cord, maybe even a backup just to be safe, is something you must have. The Hosa GTR-210 Straight Guitar Cable is a reliable 10 foot cable.
What do you think?
I chose guitar accessories that are simple, yet they are great at getting the job done. Have you tried any of the recommended accessories? How do you like them? Do you have any guitar accessories you can’t live without? I always love to hear from you, please feel free to comment!
