This items are all equipment and books which I personally use and recommend. NB you are not
buying from me here but from people on Amazon (except for transcribe which is available from Seventh String). Please see my
For sale page for items which you can buy directly from me.
Some of these I don't use as much since I bought an Ipad! You
can use this for video lessons and recording and practicing the guitar. I will write a guitar apps page soon!
Most computers now will come with a webcam built in that is good enough for Skype lessons. But if not
then try this one. In the past I have used Logitech webcams and found them to be good.
If you want to get into transcribing (and it is one of the most beneficial things you can
do for your playing). then this program is a great help. It is also useful as most of the material i cover in the lesson I can
send to you in this format. The great this about this is that you can see how the rhythm looks and also hear how it sounds
as Guitar Pro will play it back for you. you can also use it for other guitar tab on the internet!
A good quality budget guitar for beginners
If you want a cheap way to get into recording your own songs then these Boss Micro BRs are great. Not
only do they allow you to record multiple tracks, mix them and master them to a CD. But It is also a great practice tool.
You can play your guitar through it at the same time as an mp3 and hear the results through headphones. You can also loop
portions of the song and slow it down! it aslo has a guitar tuner, rhythm loops and multiple effects! (this is a more up to
date model than the one I own. I now use my Ipad with several microphones and garage band though).
If you want to gig professionally with an acoustic guitar and/or vocalist. Then this is the ultimate amp. You
can plug both guitar and microphone into this amp simultaneously and balance the sound. Get beautiful warm acoustic tomes
from this Amp and it will fill a large room with ease!
If you are interested in learning about the inner working of music then this is a great book to use for
learning about theory. It takes one element at a time and has good exercises throughout.
Another great theory book, which puts things accross in a fun and simpple to understand way. It takes you all
the way from what is a note to full on orchestral arrangement!
This book provides a good introduction to fingerstyle blues. In the style of Robert Johnson etc.
