Busking Week: Busking Workshops

Published on 15 July 2019


This week, we're giving buskers the limelight with loads of offers in our stores and the chance to win some fantastic prizes. If you've ever busked before, you'll know how difficult yet equally rewarding it can be. It can either feel like a thankless task or your moment of glory and taking all of this in your stride is just part of the experience.

Part of what we think is so commendable about buskers is their commitment to get out there and do it all over again, purely out of passion, even if they've spent hours standing in the freezing cold the day before. However, there are things that can make your life easier and we're keen to share some advice that could potentially help you out. Whether it's your equipment, your choice of songs, or anything else in between, the last thing you want to do is burn yourself out so we thought we'd take this opportunity to give you some of our top tips! 

As part of Busking Week, we're throwing Busker Workshops in all of our stores! Hosted by our resident acoustic experts, we'll be running through some of our favourite setups and telling you guys all you need to know about the latest busking gear in our stores. We'll also be showing off some acoustic techniques that you can implement in your own sets and, of course, letting you try out plenty of our guitars for yourself.

If you're a keen busker or have even just been tempted to grab your guitar and hit the streets, this is an excellent chance to make sure you're up to speed and hang out with some like-minded musicians. We're really excited to catch up with you all and hear what you've been working on, so drop by your local guitarguitar this week to become a master in the art of busking!

There's no need to reserve your space, simply head round to your local store this week and the guys will get you ready to hit the streets!
