TeChnique FoCus Use your nails
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!
