How not to play guitar. (Warning: Very gross pitcure.)

If your hand looks like this after you play guitar, you're playing it wrong. This is what someone I know hand looks like after he does a show.

Seriously.. I can't think of any reason this needs
to happen. And how do you do that to your fingers
without breaking a string!

According to him, if he was to play with a pick, all the string would go out of tune when he plays. Makes you wonder what he is doing wrong when he is playing with a pick. The way he plays guitar is he holds his hand as if he was holding a pick, hitting the stings with his finger nails. The reason his fingers bleed when he plays, is he is literally scraping his cuticles against the strings.

I know the guy can play. He used to play bass with the band I play in. They guy is a very good bass player.

Make you wonder if he has thin fingernails. I have thick nails but after a while of chunking away, the nail goes flat and thin even when using a pick - ouch....

I use my thumb and fingers pretty often to pick my guitars, both acoustic & electric.

Its sort of like getting to go barefoot in the summer for me - but I don't think I have ever injured myself doing it.

There are lots of options for picks. One company had some out that looked like copper, or at least had a bronze or copper coating. They were kinda thin too.
