An­gling your nails

Tech­nique Fo­cus

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Video -

Sub­tle dif­fer­ences in tone can be achieved by al­ter­ing the hand po­si­tion; turn­ing the hand so that the nails are more square onto the strings, for ex­am­ple, will cre­ate a thin­ner tone and is a way of bring­ing out the top note of the chord. Turn­ing the hand the other way, so that there’s more an­gle of the nail against the string, will pro­duce a warmer, fuller tone. A higher wrist and straighter thumb can help to make the bass notes sound louder.
