Thread Name: Fingernails vs. Fingerpicks
Subject: RE: Help: Fingernails vs. Fingerpicks
I just cannot use fingerpicks. My right hand has a mind of its own (no comments, please) and sooner or later either the pick goes flying or it catches on a string and makes the most godawful sound. My nails have always broken, so I pretty much use flesh. Recently, at my wife's suggestion, I have started applying something called nail protein each day. It does seem to be helping even though I am walking around with three fingers and a thumb sparkling with a brilliant shine. When I catch people staring at them, I just say, fingerpicker, and they shut up.
