Subject: RE: Guitarist's nails (again)
That's all very well Don, but you play a nylon strung guitar, it's a totally different ball game if you have to get some volume out of steel strings.

There is no alternative to using some kind of artificial reinforcement imo, all the really good players I know do this, it just comes down to a choice between acrylic and gel.

Acrylic gives more volume but gel (ultra-violet cured) is kinder on the nails.

Decisions, decisions ....
