Lesson: Filing nails with Matthew McAllister

Siccas Guitars - nailsThis might be the fourth post this week with McAllister but when it’s good it’s good. Matthew McAllister gives a lesson on filing the nails for classical guitar. This comes via the excellent Siccas Guitars and their fantastic YouTube channel. I like how he integrates the guitar into filing and the discussion on tone. You can also check out my post on nails How I Shape My Nails, however, I will be updating the pictures soon as my shape has changed since then to a steeper ramp especially near the flesh, more similar to the video below actually.
