Hey, could you look at your nail on your index finger of your picking hand and tell me if it is it all soft and crooked on one side (the part that faces the strings) or is it just me?

I know why it has happened but i'd like to know if anyone else has it too....

Mine do get like that if I ignore them, but I have to shape mine about 2-3 times a week. Except for the thumb, which I shape every week or two.

No it's not because of that, it's because my nail hits the strings alot when I pick so it has weakened it I guess.

Yeah, if I'm playing really hard with a tiny-ass pick, it softens my fingernail. It really starts to hurt, too =\

EDIT: wierd typos O.o

no, mine's normal. But I keep my nails cut very short.

I know that. I was mainly getting at the fact that when my nails get like that, it's time to fix them.

Ah ok I gotcha.

Wait, the tip, the flat part, or both?


The flat part is slanted and that whole side is softer than the other.

I get that. I had noticed lately my index finger nail on my picking hand was a bit thin and curved I didn't know what it was.

Mystery solved. Thanks UG. *Big cheesy smile*
