Hi all. Please bear with me but I'm new to learning guitar. I just need advice of the bare essentials I need.

I've settled on a guitar; the Taylor Academy 10 and I'm here so thats the absolute minimum coevered. I'm also planning on buying a multi pack of picks, guitar stand, strap, peg winder and tuner.

With regards to the tuner which style is more accurate? Clip on or stand alone?

Have I missed anything?

Thank you all for your patience.

Hi Paul

sounds like you are ready to go, only thing left now I would say is practice

I won't comment on tuner accuracy, I have no way of measuring it, but personally I like tuners that are easy for old eyes to read. So big is better than smaller - for me.

Good luck.

Repertoire:

(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction (Made Easy)

Link to the lesson here - very good for a beginner

Wild Horses (Made Easy)

Highway To Hell

Honky Tonk Women (Made Easy)

Lesson here - very easy for beginners

Breaking the Law - fun, fast paced song.

Honky Tonk Women - (Not Made Easy!) I will lick this song someday

Welcome! If you're new to playing a musical instrument-Keep it simple with a clip on tuner. On the higher priced range is the Peterson strobe clip; next would be the korg hammer clip on and lastly on in prive is snark. All do the job very well.

In the meantime-guitar tricks has a tuner and metronome on the website under tools.

or download "guitar tuna" And a metronome app.
