Pretty much my experience too. They feel foreign to me. I have messed with them by filing, trimming, stretching and they just seem to separate me from the guitar. I wished they worked, I like the increased projection.bear wrote:Had them, hated them. They pinched my fingers and I didn't like the loss of contact. Fortunately, I'm able to maintain nails. If I couldn't, I'd go nail-less.

I suppose that I could start the journey of various nail salon solutions, try a bunch of supplements, give that 'nail oil' a shot, maybe preventative Superglue/fabric steps, etc. But right now I am going down a 'full Alaska Pik path" and have ordered a handful in different sizes to see what works best. I'm not sure that this is ever going to work on my thumb, but I think that for ima it will be better in my case (not a highly skilled player),
There are one or two pieces that I play using 'c' (in just a few spots). So far I have had far fewer problems (actually none so far) on that finger.
