Picking hand fingernails
Looking after your picking hand fingernails is an important part of classical guitar playing for tone production and control of technique. You need to find the right length and angle of nail to produce a clean warm tone. The contact on the string should be both flesh of the fingertip and nail simultaneously then as you pluck, the string should glide along the nail like a ramp, with a seamless transition from flesh of fingertip to nail. It can take a bit of time and experience to get it just right. Maintaining the condition of your nails will then be needed with regular filing and polishing to keep the nail edges smooth and gleaming!
