What is the classical guitar? Why is it called so? Because it is “classical”, is it a different instrument from a guitar?

Get answers to those questions and also know a little bit about the classical guitar and its curiosities: did you know it used strings made of gut and only with the second world war nylon strings were invented? Did you know it features different possibilities of woods, and even other materials are being used? Also get some tips on classical guitar composers you definately should hear more: Mauro Giuliani, who wrote the largest amount of music for the guitar; Heitor Villa-Lobos, who revolutioned the instrument as Chopin did with the piano; and Joaquin Rodrigo, the composer of the best known guitar piece (the Concierto de Aranjuez).
