Please excuse my ignorance, I have zero knowledge/experience:

In my mind I have two categories of guitar playing: Strumming (associated with rock) and picking (associated with classical sounding music, jazz, etc.).

I do not want to learn about strumming at all, and in the picking category I do not want to learn any jazz, hip-hop, or modern-sounding music in general; I only want to learn classical-sounding music. Is there a book you would recomend for absolute beginners? I know how to read notes on a score but that's about it.


While I can't recommend a specific book, I suggest that you look into the beginner and self-instruction guides by Frederick M. Noad. Noad authored several instructional guitar books, many focusing on classical guitar playing for beginners.
