Not all songs have choruses, but you can easily identify the ones that do because a chorus contains the most memorable music and lyrics in the song. It is repeated after each verse and usually contains the hook. A chorus can be removed from the rest of the song and still sound complete in itself both musically and lyrically. All together now: “We all live in a yellow submarine…”
The chromatic scale on the piano uses all 12 black and white notes, so contains notes outside whatever key a song is in, since each key only uses 7 notes. The word "chromatic" is used to describe music which uses the chromatic scale, or to distinguish instruments which are capable of playing all its notes (like the chromatic harp). When songs use the chromatic scale it often lends an exotic or sinister feel to the music.
Strings on classical guitars are gut or nylon. The bodies of classical guitars are usually deeper than those of standard acoustic guitars for warmer and richer tones. Listen to John Williams play theme to The Deer Hunter for a good peice of modern classical guitar work.
