Wow, now I think I’ve seen everything… Apparently, fingertip protectors for playing guitar, ukulele and other stringed instruments is a thing. The protectors come in a package of four and are made of food-grade silicone material that stretches to fit the size of your index through ring fingers. Each fingertip protector has an opening in the end that will allow longer fingernails to pass through. I suppose something like this would be good for beginners who find it painful when they are first starting to play a stringed instrument. But I’ve found that calluses will build up quickly if you aren’t a big baby and are motivated enough to put in the practice required to build them 😉 You can order a set for $4.86 from Amazon. I’ll try not to be too judgy… Ok, I lied.
