Technique Focus Use your nails
All professional classical guitarists pluck the strings using the fingernails. These need to be kept 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 and 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!
