Damaged fingernail

  1. 2 years ago

    I started playing ukulele a month ago. I have a feeling I'm doing something wrong when strumming. My fingernail on the right hand got uneven (did not break, but became like this gradually). Would be okay, but it started hurting so much some days ago that I strum with another finger now.
    I play every day for 2 to 4 hours, so maybe this is the reason. Please guys, what is your advise?

  2. I have to say I've never heard of that happening, even among all of my friends that play ukulele. I play 2-4 hours a day as well and my fingernails have held up. I take hair skin and nail supplements though, so maybe start with that? I would buy some felt ukulele picks off of amazon too while you wait for your nail to heal. Good luck!
