    I'm not sure about a classical specific board, but you might want to hang out at www.harmony-central.com and ask around there for one (maybe start with the guitar jam forum). Otherwise, www.olga.net has some IRCs, but I've never been on them. Also, you could look at fingerstyle forums as many fingerstyle guitarists play classical as well or did at one point (like myself).

    thank you tgm. i also found guitarsite.com which has lots of resources about it. by the way, how long have you been playing? and how were you introduced to classical guitar? etc. sounds very good.

    who is mutley?

    DA:
    I've been playing since about 1994 (give or take a year). My dad and step mom both play as well so I've been rather spoiled. We've got over 20 guitars in my family (around $40,000 worth, mostly acoustics).
    I grew up listening to my dad play acoustic and classical and playing his Leo Kottke, Chet Atkins and Christopher Parkening records and stuff. I guess I was brain washed into thinking "Alice's Restaurant" is a great song. I eventually got bored playing rock stuff and moved to fingerstyle for a challenge.
    The classical stuff I do is mostly to help work on my technique and music theory. I figure if you can play classical stuff well, you can play just about anything.

    i can relate, everything i use is either my fathers or brothers. in fact, i myself have never actually bought a single guitar. fortunately my pop coincidentally had a spare nylon string and i'm taking that up again as a new challenge as well. it's so freshening isn't it? i just love counterpoint. i often bring it to school and it occured to me that since i have a nylon string guitar, i may as well should be playing classical music for others right? right. and all this drilling makes all that other stuff, even jazz, seem really simple in comparison. right now i'm learning 'air on a g string' by bach. do you still play classical? do you find time to pratice still? how old are you?

    I'm 22. Since I'm currently looking for a programming job (and don't have one) I have a lot of spare time that I spend playing. I'm working on Mason Williams' solo version of Classical Gas right now and Kottke's Ojo.

    I do have plenty of my own gear.
    Jasmine/Takamine cutaway (for a beater 6 string),
    Taylor 414K (one of my babies),
    Sunburst American Std Telecaster (my other baby and previous dream guitar)
    Peavey Patriot (which I stripped, stained and hotrodded)
    Jackson/Charvell (my first guitar and awesome for heavy distortion)
    Peavey Fury Bass
    and finally a Sho-Bud Maverick pedal steel.
    Plus an old Peavey 2x12 amp, Alesis monitors and power amp and lots of effects processors and stuff.
