A classical guitar is slightly different in shape from an ordinary guitar (i.e. rhythm guitar, bass guitar, Hawaiian guitar, etc.) The fret board, also known as the neck of the guitar, is slightly broader than that of other guitars. As a result the strings are more distanced from each other. The guitarist must stretch his fingers a bit more than when he is playing an acoustic or an electric guitar. When it comes to the string, the difference is that a classical guitar uses nylon strings instead of metal ones, making for a mellower sound.

Classical guitars are based on the classical mode of music and follow classically oriented instructions. But the modern day guitar tablatures follow a slightly different course from that of classical notations. Playing classical guitar is more inclined to figure work and plucking. Therefore, these classical guitar tablatures are more meticulously structured and they are much more complex and intertwined with more uses of notes (i.e. C, Bb, G, A, F, F#, etc) than others.

If we track back the history of tablatures, they have been used in the Western world for the last six centuries. They were mostly a horizontal grid read from left to right with letters and numbers written over them signifying the construction of pitches, and rhythmic signs above. Then by the 17th century various systems of tablatures existed in Germany, Italy, Spain and France. Nowadays tablatures, guitar tabs in particular, have vertical lines which represent the strings of the guitar (no matter what kind of guitar it is), horizontal lines for the fretsFind Article, and dots signifying the position of the figures.
