    All my nails are short, cause I wear contact lenses.
    I don't like to poke in one of my eye's with a long fingernail...

    So how do you fret? With the pads of your fingers?

    i dont care about my left hand. the nails are very short for fretting.

    the right hand i just file for about nearly 2 years now, and i feel very good with it.
    all nails are as long as the fingers. this is enogh to get the right "kick" in the tone. don't need longer nails.
    the thumbnail is 1-2 mm longer as the thumb. this is the right lenght i think for a good play and a good tremolo-thumb-picking

    nails are not too round and not too spikey. i care that they are smooth (bottom and topside) for a good gliding over the strings.
