I wanted to play this track all over again, as there are some little mistakes. But this morning - to my deep frustration - I broke one of the fingernails I need for my picking style. I can't wait at least two weeks until it's grown again, sorry ...

Cantaloopo well, for me it's like a pain in the a... to be without nail. Can't get used to this picks made of metal or plastic, they make too much noise on the strings. And for no gain ... this is something I'm used to ... :D +1

Cantaloopo Thanks Pete!:) +1
Fantastic piece friend. I understand your nail dilemma. For me I actually prefer calluses but they are harder to maintain unless playing fingerstyle all of the time. Ultimately it would be great to have the nail or callus as an option whenever desired. No way of doing that that I know of. One could use glue on nails when desired I suppose.
I am not fond of the plastic/metal finger picks.

Cantaloopo Thank you, my friend! :)
Well, normally I don't have much problems as my nails are very hard and there's no need to use glue or what ever to strengthen them. I also don't like fingerpicks, could never get used to them with the exception of a thumb pick. But it's not the thumb nail this time ... sometimes shit happens ... :@
congratulations nice picking and beautiful template:)+0

Cantaloopo Like always it's a lot of fun and an honour for me to have you sharing my finger picking stuff. And to be honest, Jack Daniels is not my kind of dope, with whisky I'm more into Irish Single Malt followed by Munich beer, Aglianico (Puglia) and Riesling (Rhein)! ;) +0
Lovely progression so well played! :)+0
