Holiday Songs, Info, and Gifts for the Guitar Player
Christmas Guitar. The two words seem to go together naturally. The holiday season is the perfect time to learn to play some Christmas carols and other holiday songs. It’s also the perfect time to get a new guitar or some gear (or better yet receive a guitar gift!).
Christmas Guitar Songs
The good thing about most Christmas carols and holiday songs is that for the most part they are pretty easy to play using a short list of basic guitar chords.
Check out this compilation of Christmas Guitar song tabs, chords, and video lessons.
Christmas Guitar Gifts
When it comes to gifts for guitar players, there several common scenarios:
Holiday Gift Packs- guitar gift or value packs are for for the beginning guitar player who does not own a guitar. These are complete packages that includes not only a guitar, but all the accessories and gear needed to get started playing, such as a tuner, picks, strap, instruction DVD. An acoustic guitar is a good choice since it doesn’t require an amplifier. Some would-be guitarists may have their heart set on an electric, so make sure to find out. Here are some good, quality starter packages at reasonable prices to consider: All-In-One Music Holiday Gift Packs at MusiciansFriend.com (exp:12/31)

Gift Certificates and Cards- guitar players tend to be pretty particular when it comes to guitars and gear. They often know exactly what they want, or want to be able to choose for themselves. So gift certificates are a good choice. A safe bet is Musican’s Friend, which is the largest and most well-established online music retailer. They have a big product selection, consistently great customer service, and strong guarantees.

For more "immediate gratification", the Guitar Center Gift Card is a good choice as well. If your gift recipient lives in a metropolitan area, they probably have a Guitar Center store nearby. With a GC gift card, the lucky guitar player can visit the store and walk out with the gift you gave them. No waiting for UPS to deliver!
