How tight are the strings on a nylon guitar?

    I was playing on an acoustic guitar for a few months then bought a classical guitar (3 nylon strings). However the strings appear to be quite loose and the pitch is also lower (more 'heavier') as compared to the acoustic. Is this loose tuning correct for a classical guitar or should I tighten the strings to say one or two octaves higher? Will the strings get damaged if I tighten them too much?

    For a spanish guitar, the standard tuning remains as EADGBE. So you should tune it to that only, unless you need to tune it to alternative tunings.
