As many of the UK mob will have noticed, I've had the nails on my picking hand quite long for years now, mostly for acoustic fingerstyle, but ended up cutting them right down yesterday when I tore one.
After playing for a few hours today, I've actually found that it makes certain things, particularly eight-finger stuff and hybrid picking, much easier.
How long does everyone else wear them, particularly those who alternate between acoustic and electric?
I'm a serial fingernail biter, so they've never been long. I tend to play finger style with my fingers rather than nails. The tone is darker, but it makes electric easier and I'm primarily an electric player.
