    OMG. I would have walked out right there. That's a disgrace. That makes DragonFarce no better than Justin Beiber in my book.

    I play classical guitar. I got a minor in guitar performance in college. As some of the other posters have pointed out, Classical Guitar is an entirely different animal than electric. If you are proficient at classical guitar, though, you will have a good foundation to play any genre of guitar. I didn't really play any electric or rock style before RS, but it has been pretty easy to pick up (no pun intended!). String bends are fun; something you never do on a classical.

    If you are interested in classical guitar there are tons of great sites for learning technique and songs. Bottom line, I think it will definitely improve all aspects of your musicianship to become classically trained. I would love to see more classically inspired DLC...just give us more genres! Flamenco, Jazz, Fusion, Classical...I want more!

    that is completely true, take elements of what you know and apply them to other things. I learned how to play saxophone in high school because I had previously played the piano and it was just something I had to transition onto another instrument.

    That's crazy, I actually own a sitar that my parents bought in India in the 70s and was literally 10 minutes ago thinking, "I need to find someone in town who knows how to get it strung/set up." It hasn't been maintained since they bought it and needs all the strings re-done. There are 7 main strings and 13 sympathetic strings. It also has real ivory inlay, bridge and nut, etc (back before ivory was a big no-no.)

    Time to give some luthiers in town a call....

    Yeah, I can't believe I still haven't gotten around to getting it fixed up. Anyway, sorry for thread derailment.

    Eh, I think that falls under reasons to learn classical guitar =P So i don't think you've derailed the thread so much as continued the conversation at a different angle.

    At any rate... The certainly would motivate me to learn classical guitar O.o

    Awesome sitar, Funk-n-Stein! I'll be traveling in that part of the world, and want to see if I can find a no-kidding instrument like that one. Then I'll just need someone to teach me how to play it when I get back.
