One Direction members learning guitar?

Four of the singers are currently giving the guitar a go, according to The Sun – which might make them the perfect role models for guitar strumming youngsters.
Great deals on musical instruments
Even when they love their music instrument dearly, it can be tough to get the kids to practice when they have so many other potential distractions around them.

Well, if they're a fan of boy band One Direction, the task may just have become simpler.

Four of the singers are currently giving the guitar a go, according to The Sun – which might make them the perfect role models for guitar strumming youngsters.

It comes after the group had guitars presented to them by another band, Boyce Avenue.

Apparently the instruments - Taylor axes - are worth some £20,000 – doubtless many Gear4Music readers would be more than a little pleased to have that sort of money to spend on music instruments!

"The 1D boys were really grateful but it was a bit of a pointless present as only Niall can play guitar. Harry, Liam, Zayn and Louis are now desperately trying to learn because it was a really kind gift," the Sun's source claimed.

According to the interviewee, the fact that the guitars were individually engraved as a reminder of a tour - on which, the Sun says, One Direction were supported by Boyce Avenue - means that the four less guitar-knowledgeable One Direction members "feel obliged to learn a few chords now".

One Direction are well known for their singles such as What Makes You Beautiful and One Thing.
