Pretty much just as the title says.
VOTE your preference of nail length
None at all... Bitten and chewed off down to the skin.
Enough to get the job done. Different length on middle from index for different tone. I keep an emory bd with me. Eat good food too.
I vote you add an actual poll.
As short as they can possibly be. I find that they get in the way, and I never actually use them to alter my tone- if I'm looking for more articulation than I can get with just my fingers, I'll go for a pick.
1+ for our compulsive habit!!!
I keep mine pretty short . . .
Nails get it the way, produce unwanted tone(s)
I'm not seeing a poll.
I keep my picking nails short enough to I can use them or not. I curl or "claw" my fingers like a guitarist for fingernail stuff.
Cut so they are out of the way.
I like it when she can scratch my back pretty good, but not so long it draws blood from... oh, wait... You mean MY nails???
Enuff just to get a little edge & grind.
I play fingerstyle jazz guitar, and get acrylic overlays (no fake nails, just the resin to strengthen my own) for that style of playing. I keep them long enough so that they just peek out past my fingers.
I don't particularly like them for bass playing, but am getting used to them. I prefer no nails for bass.
i thought i was the only crazy one that hates nails XD
As short as possible without them bleeding when I play.
I can't stand the noise they make when I'm playing like 16th notes and you hear finger nail noise on some notes.
+1 for "So short, I can't grab a quarter off linoleum floor."
If I want all that click-click nonsense, all I have to do is look underneath the fridge and I'll find something left over from my gui**** days.
None at all... Bitten and chewed off down to the skin
And another +1 for that.
On my right hand, long enough to give a good body scratchin !
I will also use hardener to keep them from cracking.
