I am a finger-style player who books something like 100 entertainment events and 60 church services annually. I practice and compose something like 20 hours a week. I need the extra punch that steel strings give, and the problem with that is that all the playing and practicing I do raises the risk of broken nails. And when a nail breaks, the fingertips can blister. Vicious cycle. I tried conventional metal finger picks, but I could not get them to stay on without adjusting them so tight that they cut off circulation and caused pain. Since conventional picks bend in just the opposite way of the nails, they don't produce the right feel for players who learned in the classical tradition. Kinda by accident, I discovered Alaska Picks.They might not work for everybody, but for me they are perfect, and they have altered my entire approach to playing. I combine Alaska Picks with Jim Dunlop ULTEX thumb picks, and they allow me to play with more clarity than I can with my bare right hand. I should add that I am not a genuine classical guitarist; I am a folk-styled picker who incorporates some classical techniques. So, a serious classical guitarist probably wouldn't be interested in Alaska Picks. But for me they are perfect, and I feel fortunate to have discovered them.

When ordered - the sizing was small, med, large - but no estimate of what those were. I have medium sized fingers, in my opinion, so I ordered as such. The piks were only able to fit on my pinky! It would have helped to have a measurement scale or such. Since they were inexpensive, it wasn't worth returning, unfortunately.

        Don't hesitate to give these a try. I am a tall woman (5'9") and I use mediums on my first and third fingers and a large on my 2nd finger. There are some good instructional videos on youtube that will show you how to customize these for your own fingers. I love the sound, very natural.

          The picks are not true to size. I have small fingers and the medium fits tight but loosens up after a while. They are good quality and after you file and shape them to your preference, they sound great.

                I really liked them even though at first I needed some time to get used to them. It also improves the sound if you pair them with a thump pick. I would definately recommend to purchase some.

                  I have small hands and use size medium. However, I could use the small size just as well. Look to online instruction for helpful hints to better fit the picks for your individual fingers.

                      These are step above the trad metal finger picks as they mimic the fingernail by extending you nail. But, you will need some nail of your own for these to tuck under.
                      I use these to facilitate my practice when my fingernails are less than optimal.
                      It is a different feel, and there is a learning curve.
                      They fit, but are not a perfect fit.
                      They are a compromise and not a perfect solution... but then, nothing really beats a real fingernail.

                        I play electric and acoustic bass, and guitar. I try to keep my fingernails at a length suitable for classical playing but inevitably they will split, break, etc... and I have to repair the damage. In the interim between repair or restart I have these Alaska Pik's which do help keep my nails protected while they regrow.

                        I'm an in between size as large is a wee bit too small and XL is almost too big, but I make do with the XL's.

                        They are helpful, tough, produce a natural type of sound (unlike metal). I have used them on my steel string flat tops and my electric guitars but for finger work I prefer the string spacing of a classical.

                        Overall I would have to say that, yes I do like them, but I would much rather have my own nails but they just don't take abuse very well.

                          These finger picks are very strange, at least at first, and will take some getting used to. Sizing may be way off, too. I ordered "large" for hands that are probably medium on most scales. Too small. The fit is tight. The picks are an incomplete tube in basic shape. The open space is on the pad side of your finger. They pinch. The 'under-the-finger-nail aspect seems reasonable. I really can't see they are an improvement over the old-fashioned metal finger picks. But, if Joan Baez uses them. . .
