MK Classical vs.steel string guitars (31) RE: Classical vs.steel string guitars 16 Nov 00


I'm a steel string player, mostly fingerpicking. The only thing that has kept me away from a classical or nylon stringed guitar is that I find the necks just too damn wide. It is virtually impossible for me to formulate chord positions which involve the fretting of the 6th or 6th and 5th strings together with the thumb, and fretting the other strings, as in an F chord, or a Bb chord in the first position. But I do like the sound of them for classical and flamenco stylings...as well as anything Muriel Anderson performs.
