My fingernail that is.
It took what seemed forever to grow my nails and shape them just right on my picking hand.
Well my ring finger nail just snapped right off.
Looks like its time to play some broken nail blues (2 finger version)

Your fingernail can grow back, the guitar can't. LoL: :D

There was an interview with Paul McCartney in last months Acoustic Magazene. He said he's using acrilic fingernails on his picking fingers. If it's good enough for Sir Paul....

Right hand nails for ease and clarity of fingerpicking.

I use fingerpicks. Long fingernails aren't an option in my work, and I couldn't stand 'em if I could wear them.

missileman, i know how hard it can be. The worst part is the ridicule of petty minded non-guitar players who just dont understand. Try drinking milk, probably wont help but it tastes good :lol: .

Pregnant ladies tell me that taking prenatal vitamins enhances the growth and quality of both nails and hair. (They've got lots of folic acid in them.)

HMMM prenatal vitamins?
I get quite alot of ribbing from just growing my nails and wearing clear polish on them. I don't want to give my wife any more ammo :shock:

That gelatin stuff called Knox does work to make your nails thicker/stronger. Just hide the box from your wife... poor guys. :lol:

I have the opposite problem, though. I keep my fingernails trimmed very short, but some people seem to think all women should have long nails. :roll:
