My oldest daughter has a love for string instruments. She started playing violin almost two years ago and after months of begging and pleading (and a compromise to pay half), she now has a beautiful pink guitar too. I think she likens herself to a future Joni Mitchell/Nancy Wilson (remember the 80’s band Heart?) guitar player.

Playing a musical instrument is a great confidence builder for both kids and adults. She loves playing and gets a big boost whenever she masters a new song. She’s comfortable with her violin and guitar and is learning the best ways to play and care for both instruments. There was a huge learning curve with tuning, storing, and even holidng them correctly. I played piano growing up and needless to say, I didn’t have to worry about strings, let alone holding it. I was concerned about how she’d be able to hold the guitar and play at the same time. A quality guitar strap is a must!

What we learned is that while you can play guitar sitting down and that it’s probably the best way to start out, there’s something about standing and playing that says “performance”.

The cotton guitar strap from StrapSnake allows her to comfortably handle what can be an awkward and bulky instrument. I was nervous that she’d drop the guitar or bang into something just holding it without some kind of supportive strap. This classic black cotton guitar strap has two leather ends and measures 2″ wide to fit most guitar sizes and styles (acoustic or bass). The bottom of the strap attaches to the base of her guitar really securely.

The StrapSnake guitar strap is completely adjustable (from 33.5″ to 56″) to find the most comfortable spot across her shoulders too. With a non-slip buckle and a solid string tie at the neck, the strap stays put and gives her even more confidence to concentrate on playing. She’s not worried about holding the guitar. I’m so glad we found this guitar strap for her. It fits her well and puts the focus on learning how to play guitar, not trying to manage an awkward instrument.

You can find this guitar strap and other awesome accessories on the StrapSnake website.

    My daughter took up guitar just before Christmas. She’s good anyway, with her musical talents (she played clarinet for years) and she’s already making songs up without seeing the music! It’s fun to watch them grown, isn’t it? 🙂

  3. Ooo – the guitar strap looks very sturdy and fashionable. What a pretty pink guitar! My nephew has a guitar, and he shows interest in learning how to play it. Watching him play around it makes me want to learn too.
