Can you use finger nails to play guitar instead of of a pick or finger tips?

Yes, of course you can. That's exactly how classical guitarists do it. On the other hand, they're playing on nylon strings which are substantially softer than steel strings. Your nails will not last long on steel strings. Try it and see how it goes.Source(s): Playing guitar for 56 years
