I've tried a lot things to keep from tearing nails when I play and the only alternative to Alaska picks I've found that permits my playing style is false nails (that destroy my already thin nails). I don't perform without them.

While touring In the mid-60s, substituted a flat pick for a thumb pick to to go back and forth between straight rhythm and finger picking patterns found the flexibility liberating. I eventually began using dental plastic as a false nail on my 3rd, 4th, and 5th fingernails so I could play harder. I stopped using the false nails when I quit touring but found that my nails (which were always thin) would tear if I played with any force. I read about the Alaska picks in a magazine interview with a well known finger picker and after a tough search found a folk music center that carried them. It took a few days of practice to get familiar with the slight technique and feel differences, but after a few weeks, it was remarkably like using false nails. I seldom play guitar now without wearing them.

I also play 5-string banjo and discovered that the Alaska picks work just as well as my finger picks so I stopped using the metal picks (though I do use a thumb pick). A benefit here is that I can now go back and forth between frailing and finger picking in mid-song.

I keep two Alaska picks with every one of my instruments and wouldn't do a live show without them. JB

They last quite a long time, and the only negative I've found is the plastic is not always consistent from pick to pick, so on occasion I get one that will not stay in place. I've also found that they can get flattened if pressed against something in the case, but the plastic has a memory and returns to it's original shape when put into very hot water.
They are a bargain even at full list price

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.

                    As described, it works as an extension of your fingernails. However, you do need to already have a decent amount of nail grown to use these. I expected the color to be white but was disappointed with an odd cream/nude color

                      I play mariachi and this product really helps with strumming and protects your nail. At first you will have to practice a bit, as it does modify your attack little bit.

                              What a brilliant idea. I am a finger-style guitarist who is prone to breaking fingernails. In the cold weather months my cuticles and finger tips get try and sometimes crack. This makes for some pretty uncomfortable picking, particularly since I perform often. These picks are just right for me. File them so they go just a tiny bit past the natural end of your nails, and I think you will be amazed at the results. I still like playing with my own fingertips slightly punctuated by the sound my nails produce, and I will probably always record that way. But for live performances and rehearsals day after day, these pick are a wonderful invention.
