    I have been making various guitar related queries on this forum, because I want to learn to play the guitar from the internet. What I want to learn to do is simply to play the guitar, in order to play some of my favourite songs, like Green Day Time of your Life.

    I had visited a Yamaha music store. They told me about a folk guitar and a classical guitar. So um...whats the difference and what type should I get????

    folk guitar would probably be a spanish guitar. The kind we use usually for playing modern music. You'll be wanting to buy this. A spanish guitar uses steel strings.

    A classical guitar uses nylon strings and is usually used for flamenco and classical music. Lovely to listen to. You have to play it a little differently in terms of style though the notes remain the same.
