    Default Classical Guitar?

    Anyone here play classical guitar? I was reading an old interview of Randy Rhoades and he was saying that taking classical guitar lessons was a great way to improve your playing and knowledge of the guitar. Any thoughts?

    Actually I took classical lessons in college..I am really more into to Flamenco guitar. its played on a nylon string as well..It really benefical classical when you play fingerstyle on the electric. The neck is so thick on a classical that when move to electric its neck is like butter. I hear also that classical guitarists really hate rock guitarists and vise versa

    I have this book with a bunch of etudes.One thing about classical guitar.They can really help your ear-training.
    The question is not, "Does love exist?"
    But when she leaves, where she goes?
    I got the feelin' she don't know either
    Wait like the wind, watch where she blows
