• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

I thought I'd ask what electric strings might be good for finger picking if you DON'T have nails. My go to are Regular Slinkys. They are fairly consistent across several guitars so I thought there might be a magic combo I may have not tried, for example, 'all nickel hex core' or something like that (I don't even know if that exists).

I have Ernie Ball Regular Slinkies on all my electrics and use my fingers quite a lot these days. Not sure it matters whether you use fingers or a pick.
