Thread Name: Playing away a fingernail
Subject: Playing away a fingernail
I have played in bands at the Md. Renaissance Fair for a sea-dog's age.
Last few years, my right hand index finger nail is slowly gnawed away by my guitar strings as I play through the 9-week season.

Ive tried a few things...different picks and pick angles (but I always unconsciously revert to my old ways), superglue infiltration at the nail edge, nail coatings of various kinds, gelatin.

Any experience with this? Any solutions that worked?
