Look af­ter your pick­ing hand fin­ger­nails

Guitar Techniques - - CLASSICAL -

It’s su­per im­por­tant for tone pro­duc­tion and con­trol of tech­nique to have your pick­ing hand fin­ger­nails filed to a suit­able length and shape. For most peo­ple the length is about 1 to 2 mm be­yond the end of the fin­ger­tip and the nail smooth and rounded at the edges. The con­tact on the string should be both flesh of the fin­ger­tip and nail si­mul­ta­ne­ously and the nail should act as a smooth ‘ramp’ when the string is plucked.
