The classical guitar is known as the mini orchestra of stringed instruments. Unlike other guitar styles, the classical guitar is a “one man band” that has a complete sound because the player is doing both the melody and accompanying himself, akin to a classical pianist. The classical guitar is intimate in sound quality and is portable, allowing it to be played in almost any situation.

If you are considering having live music at an event you are planning consider the classical guitar. It sounds less “stuffy” than an organ at a church or a memorial service, can fit into a corner of a private room at a fine establishment, doesn’t need tuning by a costly piano technician and sounds just as full without being overbearing.
