Further Research

The Classical Guitar Blog - one of the best informational resources for classical guitar on the web.  

The Del Camp Forums - just about every discussion possible about the classical guitar can be found here. Free, friendly, well moderated, with free sheet music in pdf format for the members.

 

Recording

Sony HDR-MV1 Music Video Recorder - in my opinion, the best portable video recorder on the market - capable of recording classical guitar with stunning video and audio clarity. It's also very easy to use. Recording is one of the most important learning tools for a musician at any level. This little recorder makes the process easy and enjoyable.

 

Music Reader

Azpen A1320G 13.3-Inch 16 GB Tablet - With the advent of digital scores dowloaded as PDFs, tablets have become extremely helpful for saving and reading music. This budget 13 inch tablet is excellent for such purposes.

Silent Practice Guitar

Yamaha SLG 130NW Silent Guitar - for those looking for a convienient practice guitar which is easy to bring on a plane and will not distub others while you practice. Highly Recommended.
