    I've got an Alvarez guitar and a TRIC case that I'm going to do some sort of give away for the youth at church. I want to put a "beginner package" together. This is what I've come up with:

    Instructional book/DVD
    Tuner
    Strings
    String Winder
    Capo
    Picks

    Any recommendations of books/dvds? Am I missing anything important that I should include? I plan on running over to GC and picking up the above items this week.

    That seems like a pretty cool gift !!

    Sorry that I can't recommend any books or dvds ... how about a certificate for some lessons at a local shop. That's how I started many many years ago.

    Awesome gift! Not sure how much you want to spend, but how about the Leanprn and Master Guitar DVD set? I would have loved to have this when first starting out.
