I've played so much guitar that I'm now not completely worthless at it. I understand that nails are important for good tone and I spend a lot of time manicuring them.
I also touch-type a lot and the combination of nails and typing is frustrating. The reason is because when I type, my nails hit the keys at a 70-90 degree angle (the correct way to touch-type) causing my precious nails to bend. Almost the same shape as eagle beaks which causes the strings to get hooked underneath the nails.
Is there a solution to this dilemma? I can trim my nails very short but then I feel that I'm losing a lot of the sound.
