Thread Name: Fingernails vs. Fingerpicks
Subject: RE: Help: Fingernails vs. Fingerpicks
There are those who equate fingerpicks with Condoms (hope they also know basic anatomy).

If you DO practice "safe picking" here's a little suggestion: Use a Dremil (or file and fine sandpaper) and cut down the sides (picking area) of your Dunlops. For me, the smaller surface the better. The edges will polish up faster with repeated use and they'll feel less intrusive on your fingers. I always use the heavy guage (.025) 'cause when you play hard for a while they actually (sort of) "melt" and the stiff ones hang in better.

Hope this makes sense....It does to me, but that doesn't mean anything.
