Re: Switching from Steel-String to Nylon Classical Guitar
I grew up playing classicals - nylon string guitars. They are like Apples and Oranges to an steel string acoustical guitar let alone an electric, let alone an ibanez, let alone a jem.
Yes there's less string tension, but their action is notoriously higher even on high end Ramirez, etc. Their strings need replacing more often than steel as they go dead terribly, and their squeek drives me nuts in the studio. I was taught to use a bunch of fingersleaze just to get it to quiet down in conservatory!
Go play one, you'll see what I am saying. It's a different instrument, played in a different way for different music.
