There are two main types of acoustic guitars: the steel string guitar (also known as the western guitar) and the classical guitar with nylon strings (also known as the Spanish guitar). Both have a distinctive sound. The Spanish guitar was used to play Spanish flamenco and classical Baroque music. The steel string guitar originates from the United States and was mainly used for playing blues and country music. These days, both types are used for all kinds of music, including pop, rock, gypsy music and singer-songwriter songs. The same techniques can be used to play both guitars.
