Known for its simple, clear sound and smooth nylon strings, the classical guitar has been enjoyed by musicians for centuries. Whether you're just starting down the road to making music or are already an accomplished guitarist, there is definitely room in your repertoire for this amazing instrument. The classical and nylon guitar brings every musician back to the basics with its six-stringed design and hollow-bodied wooden construction. Like modern acoustic guitars, the sound of the plucked string is amplified by the soundboard and vibrates through the body. What makes the classical style different is that all six strings are made from nylon or metal-wrapped nylon. Because the strings are made from this material and are strung at a lower tension than their steel counterparts, the neck of the guitar can be made entirely of wood and the interior bracing can be lighter.

The classical guitar is a great option for musicians that are just starting out. For small hands, a full-sized guitar can sometimes be too much. There are classroom guitars and models that come in 1/2 sizes to easily accommodate students. The 3/4 and 7/8 sizes are best suited towards older children and adults with a smaller build or frame. If you're looking to amplify your sound, consider choosing an acoustic-electric model. These guitars have built in pick-ups so you can easily plug into an amplifier. This amplification option lets you maintain the signature sound of the classic guitar while performing at larger venues and more open spaces. An acoustic-electric classical guitar is also right at home in the recording studio since it can be plugged directly into a mixer without the added hassle of finding a microphone. From the 1700's through to today, musicians have been playing nylon-stringed guitars both on the stage and in their everyday practises. Now that you've made the decision to learn the six-string, take some time to look into the options available for the classical and nylon guitar. With the right instrument, strumming your favorite songs will become second nature sooner than you ever would've thought possible.
