Last year, I received a Chord Buddy Junior guitar for review. My daughter uses it once in a while to learnthe basic. I told her that she's so lucky to have an access to music instruments because when I was a kid, I really wanted to learn how to play guitar but couldn't because we didn't have a guitar and we couldn't afford to buy one. The Buddy Chord Junior comes with pics but I find these american hotties guitar picks online which I think are cool to have. Maybe when I have a guitar and I learn how to play, I will buy some.
