Make the Cut!
The Long and Short of it...
This is exactly what Martha recommended to me many years ago, and now the tips of my left hand fingers are super meaty, perfect for easy cello playing--even when my nails are "long."
Need more proof?
One of my wonderful students graciously allowed me to take a picture of the progress she has made with her nail bed recession efforts. The nail on the left has been filed (in the way I describe in the video) for many weeks now, and the nail on the right has been trimmed normally.
The difference she has created is obvious!
