comment What tools should every guitarist have?
Make the socket a deep socket to ensure you can also use it on the pots, too. Beyond that, good list.

comment Guitar for super-small hands?
Giving the best advice I can. I'm 6'3" with reasonably big hands (can't palm a basketball, but I can easily shuffle sixths in G). Really, the only way to really tell is to go to a well-stocked guitar store and start trying things on.

comment Is it important for a guitarist to know how to use a pick?
I was responding to this: "I strum very hard and I'm afraid that my guitar strings would break from the pick." Playing hard might occasionally break strings if you're Godzilla or play with a metal pick, but breaking strings comes more from string age, metal fatigue and problems with the instrument. Never meant to imply Pete doesn't play with a pick, just that the worry is not well founded.
