Do you have any suggestions for keeping fingernails attached to fingers on the
fretting hand? Mine occasionally start pulling off -- not more than a
sixteenth of an inch or so, but it hurts and debilitates my playing.
The only suggestion I have is, you should keep the fingernails on your fretting hand trimmed as short as possible without hitting the skin of course, then file them smooth. When I play, only the calluses really touch the strings. My fingernails don't seem to be involved at all. I notice if I get lazy and don't trim them, they start getting in the way and playing becomes more difficult.
