I play classical guitar and I plan to work on playing the acoustic and electric guitar, is there a way to replace my real finger nails with fake ones? Preferably something that can be taken off and be put back on instantly when needed if possible.
If you go to any of the mega music stores online and search for "finger picking picks", you'll see what many players use for traditional finger picking styles. Johnny Winter used a thumb pick and normal nails for I, M, and A. If I've got my history correct, he followed the picking technique of Chet Atkins and Merle Travis, even though they both played a very different style of music than Johnny. So there is certainly a precedent for a hybrid solution of finger/nails and picks.
Good luck with search!
