Ok, i have recently discovered my issue for finger nails on guitar players. I almost puke where I seen it the first time. Is it just me or what? Why would you do that, grow your finger nails on your picking hand long and thick and disfigured all so you dont have to use a pick or learn hybird picking?
It is the ugliest thing i have ever seen, then when they play, you can hear the "clicking" on there nails on the pick guard. ewwwwwww
Does this benifit the player what so ever? Were there any of the "pro's" that did this? I have watched, very internsley, an ton of concerts live and dvd, and cant think of any big name that did this? Do you know anyone who does this, or you do it? WTF R U Thinkin!

Yes. It massively improves the tone when playing flamenco and classical guitar. Makes it a damn sight easier too.

John Butler, he uses his to finger pick. It's disgusting, but apparantly it works quite well for him.

I don't get it. How do you have a fetish for fingernails, if you "almost puke where I seen it the first time"?

Unless you also have a vomiting fetish...

Just throwing that out there.

What does this have to do with fetishes?
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

Oh maybe, I don't know. I was pretty disgusted when I first saw it, but considering it was watching him play Ocean, that made it all better

I bet your misuse of the word 'fetish' has led to some interesing situations: 'Hey guys, don't you have a fetish for women taking a shit on you?'

On a semi-related note, I heard that some sex fetish experts have said that a fetish is only a fetish if something isn't naturally occurring with humans. Such as bondage, and whatever. This means that body fascination such as feet, and in your case finger nails isn't a fetish.

This of course is probably and most likely bull****.

Wait, re-read the post.

Randy Rhoads did it, and had long finger nails on his thumb (fretting hand), and on his pinkie finger (picking finger).

Yeh i think they are fake. I like 'Pickapart', if you find the video he did of it for total guitar you can see his nails abit better.

define:

An object that is believed to have magical or spiritual powers, especially such an object associated with animistic or shamanistic religious practices.

An object of unreasonably excessive attention or reverence: made a fetish of punctuality.

Something, such as a material object or a nonsexual part of the body, that arouses sexual desire and may become necessary for sexual gratification.

An abnormally obsessive preoccupation or attachment; a fixation.

I hate it when people have long nails and a load of dirt and grime backs up underneath them.

*shudder*

Yes, a fixation associated with feelings where you are attracted to it, not disgusted.
