Nylon-String Guitars

Hi, fellow 'Guitars and Gear' group members! We were wondering...Do any of you play a nylon-string guitar? If so, what kind of music do you like to play on it?

I mainly play easy classical music on my nylons to develop my fingerstyle. But I would also play classical on steel strings...

Yes, I like to play everything on my classical guitar: rock, jazz, folk, classical, originals, and so on. I play only finger style on that guitar. And while I prefer playing on a nylon string at all times, I will use a steel string guitar with a pick if I'm going to strum along to a few rock/pop tunes in a noisy venue.

I think it adds texture to any style of music... I play one for any style of music... as long as I'm using my fingers rather than a flatpick... not to say you can't use them with flatpicks, I just don't.
