My son has recently finished his guitar lesson. Now he can play several guitar tunes. Yesterday we had a great time listening to him while playing the guitar, we also sing along with it. But it will sound even better if he has a guitar amplifier, so i am also planning to buy one and a bass tuning machine to enhance the sound of his guitar. Yes, it is quite expensive but listening to my son strums those strings, I really believe that it was worth every penny.
