    Hi Friends,
    I am new to guitar playing.But while playing what i noticed is,My finger nails obstruct pressing strings even through they are of minimal length.So it hurts and i can't pick the strings clearly.So i want a gear or finger caps to be worn over finger tips so that i can easily press them.
    So what i need from you guys is the name of the "Gear" if such thing exists and place/kind of shop to buy it from.

    I live in delhi and dying to play guitar properly.I know it hurts while playing guitar at first,but i feel i am not able to press the strings properly because of my finger tip shapes(Bad) :p

    Thanks

    Do you mean to say that when you have cut the nail, it still protrudes out of the finger tip? (actually how is that possible)
    Or is it that the nail ends where the finger tip also ends.

    If its the first case - then I don't know how you can come across, other than making some sort of false finger tips and sticking on to your fingers.
    If its the second case, then you would need to slightly alter your fingering style. In order to make contact of the finger tips with the strings (and not the nails)

    haha strange... :):):)

    due to practicing the distance between nails & fingertips of my left hand are greater than that of my right hand.. (looks weird to a non-guitarist) :p:
