I have a quasi- ‘store’ on this website, where you can by all or your guitar essentials – strings, picks, capos, sheet music, CDs, etc. In fact the ‘store’ is just my own guitar-specific version of so all of the shipping, payment and inventory are handled by This means you get service, prices and secure payments, while I get a small commission. So please consider using my store rather than the regular store (or any other online store).
