Often referred to as a number of different names including a Spanish guitar, classical guitar or nylon strung guitar, the classical has lots of differences when compared to a steel strung 'western' style guitar. Nylon strung guitars have a much softer sound and can often be heard in Classical and Spanish music. They are a very dynamic instrument and can be heard in some of the most high energy flamenco music as well as the most peaceful classical soundtracks. With a softer sound also comes a softer string making these guitars very popular for beginners as they are much kinder on the fingers for those only just starting, when compared to a steel string acoustic which can cause a few sore fingers in the early days!
