The first is a beginner piece, the second is an excerpt of a Fernando Sor arpeggio piece, and the third is a "classic" Carcassi piece, excuse the pun. This guitar is perfect for beginners because it doesn't inflict mechanical difficulties that cheaper guitars often do, like neck warping, or poor string action. Advanced players will also enjoy practicing on this guitar.
One reason I bought this classical guitar (as opposed to an acoustic guitar) is because the neck is slightly wider and the strings further apart than on an acoustic guitar. My hands are large, and it makes it easier for me to finger the chords and notes without interfering with other strings. Also, the nylon strings are a little easier on the fingertips then steel strings are. These two guitar types sound differently, and I suppose an expert would buy a guitar based on the type of sound they wanted. I just wanted something cheap and as comfortable as possible for the price. This one worked for me.
I had always been throwing around the idea of buying a cheap acoustic guitar so I could keep my electric guitar (and all associated equipment) at home while I was at school, but never found something I was willing to buy.
But then, lo and behold, came Amazon's Cyber Monday deals and I picked up this cheap little (note:full-size) classical guitar for $60 and free two-day shipping with Amazon Prime. My guitar arrived the next day (a nice little surprise).
I tuned it and started playing, and I'm surprised with how good a $60 classical can really sound. The tuning pegs are a little....off....but I can forgive that. You get what you pay for, certainly, but with this thing you get so much more than you expect.
Summary: Buy it if you're looking for a cheap guitar to mess around with or even if you're just starting guitar. This thing is absolutely unbeatable in this price range.
I was very pleased with the look and feel of this guitar when it came. It sounded pretty good to me, too. But then again, not being a "guitar guy" (or gal) I was holding off my enthusiasm until I had a chance to have my friend check it out. He tuned it (all guitars are shipped out of tune so the strings are not overly stressed during the shipping process which would cause them to break) and he played several songs on it. He was very impressed with the guitar's intonation and sound quality. He did mention that the action was a little high as you move higher up on the fretboard but for a beginner, this is not a big deal and it can easily be fixed by filing down the saddle just a little bit. (See, told you I learned the lingo! LoL)
Overall, I would highly recommend this guitar for a beginner on a budget. You get a good quality guitar that looks beautiful and sounds great! After seeing this, my daughter now wants one for her birthday next year. I cannot wait to see my son's face light up on Christmas morning.

Had high hopes from other reviews, so thought I'd better share mine:
