The term Classical Guitar, also referred to as "Spanish Guitar", is a reference to both a type of guitar and a genre with associated playing techniques.


What we call the "Classical Guitar" almost always utilizes nylon or synthetic treble strings and the technique very rarely calls for the use of a pick or plectrum; most often the player uses the fingertips and strikes the string with a combination of fingernail and flesh.


In this usage, the word "Classical" refers to the genre known colloqually as "Classical Music", not to the "Classical Period" of Western Music, ca. 1750 - 1820.


Indeed, there exist written works for guitar and it's forefathers (oud, lute) that were written as early as the 12 century. Its lineage can be traced back to several instruments of the Ancient world, including the Greek lyre. 


The first fretted string instruments are belived to have originated in Asia and India and subsequently migrated to Europe during the High Middle Ages ca. 1000AD.


However, the modern classical guitar as recognized today is generally agreed to have been developed in the 1800's; most notably by the Spanish luthier Antonio Torres, which is why it is referred to as the Spanish Guitar.
