I don't completely understand the different products.

If one buys the product called "Nylon Guitar", does it not include the strumming feature?

If one buys "Nylon Strum", is it the nylon guitar including the strumming feature? Or only the strumming feature with no samples?

Or is the "Strum" product for both the nylon and acoustic (steel string) guitars?

Please clarify the differences/

Also, for anyone who has tried both, how does the strum feature of this product compare with that of Real Guitar 2L? Obviously this is a much more comprehensive sample collection than comes with that (RG) product, but regarding just a comparison of the strumming feature?

Does the nylon strum package include flamenco strums? Bossa nova?

Thank you for the info.
