2nd.Acoustic guitar or Classical guitar?

For children, most cases the best place to start is on a classical guitar and there is a very good reason for this. A classical guitar has nylon strings which are gentle on the fingers, compared with the steel strings of an acoustic or electric guitar.

Acoustic guitars are similar in shape to a classical guitar but come with steel strings. This gives the acoustic guitar a much brighter and louder sound. The downside being that the steel strings can be quite sharp, especially to young fingers.

2st.sound and strings

Acoustic guitar:

Classical guitar:

An acoustic guitar is a guitar that produces sound acoustically by “transmitting the vibration of the strings to the air”.The sound waves from the strings of an acoustic guitar resonate through the guitar’s body, therefore creating sound.Acoustic guitar has a much brighter tone due to the steel strings.Acoustic guitars are perfect for strumming and chordal work and have been used on countless records throughout popular music.However, acoustic guitars tend to appear most often in the following genres:Folk.Pop Music.Country.

The ultimate difference between an acoustic and a classical guitar is the strings. Classical guitars use nylon strings as opposed to steel strings on an acoustic guitar. This is where the major differences in sound come from. Nylon strings are a lot thicker and produce a more mellow, softer sound than steel strings.
