    Nylon acoustic vs. Steel string for Bollywood songs ?
    My aim is to sing along with playing chords

    Few examples
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XU6SCfjkG6U (Is this steel string?)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pL846H2Sl0 (Nylon guitar and sounds so good)

    I feel that for rhythm guitar, nylon should be used with singing . Am I wrong?
    But still I see most people using only acoustic steel string guitar when singing. Why?
    Wouldn't Nylon with singing sound more awesome?

    Yes its a steel string guitar(always check the headstock..nylon ones have distinct headstock)
    Nylon strings guitars are more suitable for Classical music(playing with Fingerpicking style) and in Flamenco(playing with strumming)
