Andrés Segovia (1893-1987) is considered to be the father of the modern classical guitar movement by most modern scholars. Without Segovia’s efforts, the classical guitar would not be where it is today. After World War II, Segovia became among the first to endorse the use of nylon strings instead of gut strings.  This new advance allowed for greater stability in intonation, and was the final missing ingredient in the standardization of the instrument.
