  2. I would have clipped the ring and pinky fingers instead. That secondary attack from a little extra nail sounds good to me for fingerstyle.

    I do the same.
    I never let them all get long.
    I just keep the right hand index and middle extra short for fretless playing.

    I don't mind having nails on my right hand, & actually prefer having nails for digging in on Fairies Wear Boots.
    My lazy finger-clipping habit is leaving the pinky every other time I trim them.

    I should have learned my lesson doing that, because it cost me a job once in 2005.
    The interviewer noticed my pinky nails weren't trimmed & it was a fad in Thailand, might still be.

    It's to indicate that you are so well off you don't do anything strenuous enough to break a nail

    Well at least you guys trim two or more nails. Since I've been unable to work on SSDI. The time I do anything is when we rehearse or play. If not I'm pretty much waiting for my check and doing nothing worth mentioning. Like totally relaxing. It very unfortunate that everyone is afraid to hire people under the table.

    2nd Guy, lazing around on the porch; "Oh, yeah? How much'll you bet?"
    1st Guy; "I'll bet a whole dollar I'm lazier than you are."
    2nd Guy, after thinking for a minute; "Well, you win, I guess. Take the dollar outta my pocket..."

    If you're like Guy #2, that's how you know....:whistle:
  9. Ha ha Ive done that a couple times over the years when I was in a hurry to get to a gig on time lol. Try to avoid it though bevause around here if you let your pinky nail in particular grow out people think you’re a cocaine user.
