This post may sound familiar, but don't worry if so, because I am just restating my problem better. I find alot of friction between my plucking fingers and the strings. Mind you, I don't feel any friction on the neck with my fretting hand. I put some lubricant on my 2 fingertips so my fingers would glide across the strings easier. It worked great. However, I wonder if there is a better set up or something that could relieve the problem without having to put anything on my fingertips.
