Once again the term "Best" is subjective. There are various brands within the same price range and all sound good. If your ear is tuned to a particular tone that you get with a particular set of strings then you should go for that, else experiment with other brands and maybe you will like something more.

Take care that you don't get a shock with an electric guitar! ..... Just kidding :-) Acoustic, Steel, and Electric guitars have been created for different styles of playing. You may be able to play finger style on an electric guitar but you will not be able to do certain things on an acoustic or classical guitar that you can do with an electric one.

Learning classical guitar is very good for developing musicianship. Done right, you'll learn to identify and play different lines in the piece, how the bass, melody and chords/harmony work together. Classical guitar also requires good technique, which does transfer pretty well to electric.

Learning classical guitar is very good for developing musicianship. Done right, you'll learn to identify and play different lines in the piece, how the bass, melody and chords/harmony work together. Classical guitar also requires good technique, which does transfer pretty well to electric.

Having said that, there will be an adjustment period when you first play electric.

Personally, I would agree that learning some classical will help with playing and writing any genre of music - but if you really want to play electric and are committed to learning (vs. experimenting), there's no harm picking up *both* at the same time. Another advantage of learning classical if you like metal is that a lot of the more melodic metal borrows heavily from classical music, especially Bach.
There are several sites where you can learn metal guitar techniques and songs. TrueFire tends to be more technique oriented, while GuitarTricks, etc. have a stronger focus on songs. «less

You can play the guitar with a pick, but you can't play many classical pieces with a pick. Most require more than one string being played simultaneously.
If you are really dead set against learning classical finger techniques, then yeah, you should probably get a steel string. Ask your teacher if he's willing to teach you songs/styles that you can play with a pick. Maybe you could at least explore the idea of using a combination of pick and fingers. You won't find any true classical players (or flamenco style either) doing it, but there are plenty of amazing guitarists who have done it successfully in rock, country, folk, jazz, etc. It's up to you.

But I will say there is a definite difference in tone between pick and fingers. Fingers have a warmer, more variable "attack" on the string. Picks are easier for playing fast, single string passages, but it's really incredible the speed that can be generated by a real master player using their nails. If your teacher plays flamenco and classical, he can probably show you some excellent examples to illustrate this...

By the way, nylon strings aren't *that* rough- give it a try. The callusus on your finger tips will build up quickly, it doesn't really hurt that much. You should also know that standard steel strings will be even rougher on your fingers. Remember, you have a left hand (or fretting hand), http://www.too...in fact, this is the hand that will probably hurt more in the early stages of learning. «less

Do not use light-gauge steel strings either. You should only use nylon strings on this guitar.

Steel strings put much more tension on the neck of a guitar compared to nylon strings.

Guitars designed for steel strings have very stiff, strong necks with a metal truss rod inside the neck designed to counteract the additional tension from the steel strings.

Classical guitars designed for nylon strings generally do not have a truss rod in the neck, and the neck is built only to withstand the lower tension of the nylon strings.

Furthermore, the top of the classical guitar and the bridge are braced underneath only to withstand the much lower tension of the nylon strings.

If you keep those steel strings on your guitar, the neck will permanently bend and warp, the top of the guitar will "belly up" and warp, and the bridge will eventually rip loose from where it is glued to the top of the guitar, taking a good deal of the wood of the top of the guitar with it. Your guitar will be ruined. It will not be feasible to repair the damage.

Never, never put steel strings on a classical guitar built for nylon strings. «less

Usually while playing electric guitars, people stand and play. However, R. Prasanna, plays while sitting. Coming to the height of the guitar, use a belt and adjust it to a height which is comfortable for you. Generally, the most comfortable area is the lower portion of the guitar is slightly close to your waist. But then that depends from person to person.
