Classical Guitar

The classical guitar is the member of the guitar family used in classical music. It is an acoustical wooden guitar with six classical guitar strings as opposed to the metal strings used in acoustic and electric guitars designed for popular music.
In addition to the instrument, the phrase "classical guitar" can refer to two other concepts:
The instrumental finger technique common to classical guitar—individual strings plucked with the fingernails or, rarely, fingertips.
The instrument's classical music repertoire.
