Great additions Matt! I also recommend nylon string guitars for my students. If you have a steel string and your fingers are hurting there are two types of strings that can be used to make it easier on your fingers. One type is called “silk and steel”. The core of the wound strings are a combination of guess what, “silk and steel” which makes the string a little easier to fret (press down) than a wound steel string (where the core is steel). The other option is a set of nylon strings that have ball ends on the strings. They are available and do work. You may have to adjust the neck if you use either type as the strings do not have the same amount of tension as steel strings. NEVER put steel strings on a nylon string guitar.
