Great Gifts For Musicians
By Bill TrevenaGeorges Music
Whether youre looking for some last second gift ideas for a band-mate, you were lucky enough to get a Georges Music Gift Card, or even some cold, hard cash, here are some staple ideas to help out with the decision making process.
For the Guitarist
If youre a guitarist you must have a humidifier
! With the change of seasons, and the cooler weather especially in the north, humidifiers
are a must to keep your guitar playing as it should. With most under $30, its only a fraction of what it would cost for an expensive repair that would be necessary from a cracked fretboard or body due to the shrinking of the wood due to low humidity. Theyre worth every penny!
Staples for ALL Musicians
All musicians can appreciate extras of those staple items that arent a big deal until they break or you forget one! Microphone clips
, and stands
. Extra sticks and drum keys for drummers
, cables and connectors for doing recordings
, and extra strings, cables and picks for guitar players
. You can never have too many of those types of items.
Learning Materials For All Levels of Play
And lastly no matter what the level of play theres nothing better you can get than some learning materials
for inspiration. Getting better and learning something new is what keeps music fun and exciting. Whether its a music book to learn some new songs or an instructional DVD of your favorite musician, the amount of material out there to be able to learn from is incredible. Our stores are stocked with tons of songbooks from ABBA to Zeppelin - whatever youre fancy! (Im more of a Led Zep fan myself, but hey thats just me!). If youre into learning a new style; jazz, country, metal - whatever weve got it covered. Make it your resolution to improve your playing in the upcoming year!And if youre still not sure. if youre giving a gift, theres always the Georges Music Gift Card
then they can get exactly what they want!Thanks for reading See you in 2010!
