Konstantina Andritsou​ plays 'Capricho Arabe', by Francisco Tarrega [​​1852-1909]. ​

The number of videos on Youtube for this piece is astounding, but this one takes it all.

​That's a full size classical guitar.

Notice her right hand, it's in a perfect and proper position; she is doing rest strokes with her fingers, the proper
way to play scale passages on classical guitar.

Among other things I find remarkable about this is NAILS. Kids nails tend to be soft, very soft. Yet she clearly has nails on her right hand. My nails are soft and it is the Devil's job trying to stop them from splitting for fingerpicking on my Spanish. I wonder what her secret is?

The beauty of classical guitar is that it's compatible with any other listening preferences. So no matter what type of music you like or whoever you like to listen to, rock, jazz, pop, you name it, and especially if you like the guitar and all its varieties as has been over the years out there, classical guitar will still work for you and provides a pleasant change from everything else.
