Your misquoting me my buddy. It's incomplete. If you read my post again, this is what I said just before that:tateharmann wrote: ↑Tue Jun 06, 2017 11:20 pmSorry buddy...wrong again - I'll address the teachers first: Rob MacKillop and David van Ooijen are two wonderful players AND teachers that are happy to teach flesh technique. I'm certain there are others.
Instruction books - Emilio Pujol's guitar school comes to mind (written in the 1930's, no?) - and again, there are others.
"Let me put in a disclaimer here: When I say "all" or "every" I mean at least 999 out of 1000. There always will be exceptions here and there. Just ask the flat earth society." But you left that part out. Not surprising though.
So for all you students who are still confused about this, again, the overwhelming majority of all the great guitarists and teachers of today will tell you that you will not realize the full potential of the classical guitar without using your fingernails. So despite all of the justifications to not do so, learn to use your fingernails. And again, that's not my dogmatic advice, it's the advice of an overwhelming majority of all professional classical guitar teachers and players. Pretty good advice. And again, if you don't want to use nails, that's fine. I've commented a lot on this, so I won't rehash it here. But for whatever reason you do this, just know that most professional teachers and players will tell you that you can never realize the full potential of this great instrument without using nails. Learn to use your nails, it's not that difficult.
