Guitar-related quotes for scrapbooking pages include:
- "Nothing is more beautiful than a guitar, save perhaps two." --Fredric Chopin
- "My guitar is not a thing. It is an extension of myself, it is who I am." --Joan Jett

No guitar layout would be complete without a photo of the musician at work. Have a friend take pictures of you striking your best rock star pose or experiment with the self-timer feature on your camera to take your own shots. If you need photos of your band performing, 10 Tips for Rock Photography includes a number of helpful suggestions for getting good photos in areas with less than ideal lighting.
A playing the guitar scrapbook layout is a great place to experiment with incorporating different forms of memorabilia into your album. For example:
- Use old guitar picks to make a border along the edge of your page.
- Use sheet music, concert ticket stubs, or photos of your favorite rock stars to make a mini collage on a tag embellishment.
- Include a CD of you playing your favorite songs in a pocket on your layout.
- If you perform as part of a band, save newspaper reviews for your scrapbook. Even if they are less than flattering, the reviews still document your progress as a musician.
