After using fingerpicks and a thumbpick for my fingerstyle guitar playing for a few years, I’m considering going back to fingernails and/or flesh depending on how my fingernails hold up.

Some knowledgeable guitarists that I respect have cautioned against incorporating any unnatural contortions in your playing including the use of finger picks and also any type of anchoring of your fingers on the soundboard.

Leo Kottke said in the July 1998 issue of “Guitar for the Practicing Musician”, in an article titled “Mr. Natural” that he had to give up his fingerpicks after his doctor told him he had tendinitis. He eventually got rid of his thumbpick as well. He said, “You need a little “Mr. Natural” in your technique, because if there is any contortion anywhere, you can really hurt yourself.”
