    I met B.B. Shawn (Blind Boy shawn) when he was playing uke for Ka'au Crater Boys... when I shook his hand, I noticed his whole right hand was fake nails... I was like... brah you GENIOUS!!!

    couldn't really see it when he was on stage... honestly it didn't even matter. If you heard him jam, you'd FREAK OUT... and probably say... I just need to retire! LOL

    Lol, I just posted this on another thread...

    aLaska picks: http://www.alaskapik.com/

    These are removable, customizable, and cheap. Plus, they are durable (my guitar teacher has had the same set for years).

    I keep a set of these in my gig-bag along with a roll of that cotton-bandage-tape stuff to use if I break a nail. I use to tape to help keep em on and also to cover the slots on the top (without the tape I tend to snag the strings in the slot when I triple-strum)

    Default Uke Player That Used Fake Nail Sets Vs. Professionally Done

    You could try a set from your local drug store that sells these fake nail sets. The only difference I found using the fake nail set from actually getting them done professionally was that the cheap set will break faster than the professionally done one!! I use to have one my friends girlfriend do them for me cause I was to embaressed to get them done in a beauty shop!! It also depends on how hard you pick!! But let me tell it works!! The picking sounds alot different...cleaner, crisper and loud. I think the cheap set I use to use was like Lee Press On Nails and some other generic brand. The glue is the same as super glue. Use to use them on my pointer, middle and thumb.

    Hope this helps!!

    Happy Playing!!

    i wouldn't ever put fake nails on because.. doesn't seem normal to me for a guy to wear fake nails.. but i guess its like "a girl color is pink" its not, girls just happen to wear it more.

    I wouldn't be made fun of.. everybody would tease the sh!t out of me for ever and ever.. i get teased for fileing(sp??) lmao my nails instead of cutting.

    Growing your nails on the hand you strum with seems easier because i used to grow both but when i hold the strings down the nail sumtimes hits the string and makes a weird noise lol

    i think it would look weird for a guy to be buying fake nails. but i didnt know that eating jello makes your nails and hair thicker. do you have to eat it often?
