I could use some tips from bassists about taking care of fingernails on the right hand.
I find that after playing bass for not all that long – half an hour or so – the nails on my right fingers really wear down badly. I’ve noticed for years that my nails get more and more brittle as the years pass, and even playing steel strings on a guitar with my nails is problematic (hence I use Alaska Piks whenever I play finger-style on every acoustic except my classical). This is obviously not conducive to getting better at bass…! Or anything else with the instrument for that matter.
What do you bass players do to take care of your nails and fingers? Thanks!
