    Also excluding picks and straps.

    Mine is my Peterson tuner. Although owning it has really helped train my ear and I can tune better on my own now, it's my best friend on those nights my ears don't want to play ball.

    Tuner, metronome, tab books, patient and understanding wife.

    I think a tuner has to be the most important.
    I despair when I'm in a shop and overhear a newb buying a guitar

    Do you want a tuner ?
    Do I need one?

    Well , the beginner book has a CD you can tune to etc etc


    It should be a flogging offence to sell a guitar without a tuner.

    At first I thought tuner too. But then I realized that in dire straits and with practice I could get back to some pretty good old fashioned tuning techniques...leaving room for something else??????
    ....ummmm....
    ....uhhhh....


    Can I stash this wish???

    Probably my tuner. Sucks playing out of tune, but barring tuner being an option, I'd say it's my overdrive pedal. If I could only pick one thing to pop my leads, that'd be it.

    I know you said excluding picks, but this isn't an ordinary pick ...

    I think it's a very good OD pedal. (Unless you can crank your amp up)

    But since I can tune 100% correctly by ear, I will go with the tuner...:)
