Few things are as beautifully soothing as the gentle voice of a classical guitar. Its strings are generally nylon, making for a softer, mellower sound. Its fingerboard is wider, allowing for complex fingering, and its shape is more evenly curved. The classical guitar is held in a more ergonomic position, and the action of the player’s right hand is more specific from the beginning than that of the popular electric and acoustic guitars. To be clear, a classical guitar is quite certainly an acoustic guitar, in that its sound depends upon the strings and sound box of the instrument and not on electronic amplification. Still, the sound, style, and technique of a classical guitar earn it a category all its own. The classical guitar course includes music reading, ear-training, technique, and music theory.
