    it really isn't.

    i was working on this the other day. i personally found it easier to come off of the print side of the thumb as aposed to the nail side.

    works just as well for me this way.

    any thoughts?

    Could you elaborate please? I'm a little in the dark on what you mean (English is only my 2nd language).

    well, slap a string with you're thumb. then smack it again, and on the second time you hit it, on the way back up hook the side of your thumb (on top, by the side of your nail) and pop the sting back up. it's an effective way to make tripples.

    um.. well thats kinda how you're supposed to do it.. you aren't supposed to stick your thump completely between the strings and pull on it using your nail.
