So the problem is that when i press down on the fret board straight down with my finger my nail hits the fretboard cuz the tip of my fingers are still soft, (caloused but soft); this happens with the thinner strings. Not that big of a deal with the E string because it's on the side so I can press it down messy. But the B string is a problem. But I already cut and filed my nails down to the fleshy part....

Usually I don't press straight down and instead angle my hand and use the side of my finger, but I don't think that that was the best way to play. Cuz often times my finger or finger nail touches the other open strings.

So is basically what I gotta do is keep on playing like that until the calousses really build up?
