Thanks, Alessandro. You say you tried "recently", and are not satisfied with the result. It took me six months to start developing the sound I found acceptable, and I have refined that over twenty-five years. When you first started playing with nails, we're you satisfied with that sound immediately, or did it take time to develop and refine? No matter how you do it, good tone takes time, unless you are very lucky, which I wasnt. I had to work at it.
