if you google tommy emmanuel and nails you find tons of discussions about nail free finger picking including a very nice interview with tommy himself. he argues that he ended up playing with the finger tips because he didn't like the sound of his nails. only downside i recall from this interview: he mention that one day at home doing dish washing instead of hours of practicing softens hos finger tips such that he can no longer play adequately... :wink:
