TeCh­nique Fo­Cus Use your nails

Guitar Techniques - - Play: Classical -

All pro­fes­sional clas­si­cal gui­tarists pluck the strings us­ing the fin­ger­nails. These need to be kept at the right length and shaped cor­rectly so that they cre­ate a good pluck­ing ac­tion and the best pos­si­ble tone. Ev­ery se­ri­ous player keeps a va­ri­ety of nails files, buf­fers and a big favourite is very fine wet-or-dry sand­ing paper. This is used to smooth off the edges of the nails and keep them buffed to a fine pol­ish! The bet­ter the nails, the bet­ter the tone - trust me!
