Created and designed by my husband, Cody, aka "The Groovy Guitar Dude"! I am super proud of him for putting this cute notebook together. He's a note-taker even as an advanced guitarist himself. He loves to write everything down!

5.) Candles - Okay. I know what you're thinking, but hear me out. Imagine creating a guitar practice routine that is a total vibe.

For me that's having a hot cozy drink and lighting a candle to set the mood for picking up my guitar.

My personal favorite recently has been Coast + Salt's "Java" candle. It's a blend of coffee and coconut - two of my favorite scents and it smells just like a coffee shop, which is mood I'm usually going for!

This is actually a local beachy brand I love that creates hand-poured clean-burning candles!

Use my code: GG15 for 15% off your Coast + Salt purchase!

6.) Elixir strings - treat your guitarist to some premium coated strings!

My husband and I don't use anything other than Elixir for all of our guitars. They feel so perfectly smooth and play amazingly!

Our favorite recommendation is the 80/20 Bronze HD Light 13 - 53 gauge. It gives a very bright, full, and focused tone. And with the coating, these strings last far longer that uncoated strings. Makes a perfect stocking stuffer!

7.) Sweetwater Gift Card - not sure what to gift them? A giftcard is perfect!

Give the gift of music with a Sweetwater Giftcard! Sweetwater is America's largest music store and offers 2 day shipping. They have everything a musician could ever desire.

8.) Guitar Picks - because every guitarist needs more picks.

We just launched guitar picks in the store, but if you purchase one of our capos, it comes with all 3 picks!

9.) Beginner Guitar Bundle - the perfect lesson set for the newbie guitarist.

My beginner guitar bundle is a combo of both of my courses:

  • Don't Fret. Everything's O'capo Beginner Guitar Course

  • Barre Chord Breakthrough

It's the perfect place to start for a beginner guitarist from Day 1 to barre chords and right now it's 50% off!

for guitar newbies that want just the basics.

This groovy brief beginner guitar course created by my husband, Cody, teaches you everything you need to know in 15 minutes to get started playing your favorite songs. And it's currently on sale for only $10!
