want to use into a guitar pick. Choose the material you want to use - whether it's a credit card, hotel room key card or
plastic packaging material - put it into the device, give it a punch and you've got a new pick.
Recommended For: Guitarists or bassists who are all about their individuality and are always losing things.
Zoom Handy Recorder:

provides the quality we all expect these days.

handy to record those spur-of-the-moment jams or song ideas.

Kaossilator 2. Simply pick a sound and swipe your finger on the pad to create cool tones. The device features 150
built-in sounds that cover every style of dance music.
Recommended For: Anyone from a youngster just starting to get into music to professional musicians who
want a handy, portable device to create loops and sounds.
Complete Beatles Scores:
The Skinny: What do you call someone who hangs out with musicians? The
drummer. How do you slow down a guitar player? Put sheet music in front of them. If you've got a
musician on your shopping list, odds are they love The Beatles, and this would give them all the instrumental parts for
212 Beatles songs all in a hardcover deluxe slip case.
Recommended For: Anyone that enjoys those two music jokes.
Learn The Mandolin Package:
The Skinny: For well under $100 you can get one of your musician friends or family a: Brand new mandolin,
gig bag and two instructional books (one for method, one chords.)

Also a great gift for a guitar-player that wants to experiment with the mando.
