comment Guitar isn't playing in tune
This may sound obvious, but... is the guitar in tune? The strings may be in tune with each other, but if the guitar itself is below standard tuning (ie. the E-string is playing closer to a D), it screws up the intonation, especially on the bass strings.

comment Proper maintenance for classic guitars?
@talonx: I have a nylon-string guitar which I've had for three years, and have only changed the strings twice. It still sounds fantastic. My dad has a 12-string fender which he has had for 30 years, and I don't think he's ever changed the strings on it (at least, not in the last 25 years that I've been alive :) ). It still sounds beautiful, and the strings are surprisingly (to me, at least) not rusting at all. So, your mileage on these things may vary.

comment What are some good slap guitar resources?
You may be interested in the tap-master of japan, Kotaro Oshio. I mention him not (just) because he is my personal favorite, but because he has video tutorials for the techniques involved in each of his most popular songs, most of which can be found on youtube. Yes, he is speaking Japanese, but you don't need to understand the language to understand what he's saying, for the most part.
