Talking Guitar: Nail Care

We all care about the guitar we play, the strings, capos, pedals, microphones and amplifiers we use to get our desired guitar sound, but what about the one thing that is directly influencing the quality of the sound we are producing? For fingerstyle guitarists, caring for your nails is vital to achieving the most balanced tone possible across the strings.

In this video, Michael Watts talks through his routine for caring for his nails, the impact it has on his own tone, and what you can do today to improve yours.


We stock Wolfram nail files, which are specially designed for guitarists to maintain nail strength and promote a more balanced tone. Head on over to our Wolfram Nail File page to check out the different models available.
