i can not get used to useing a plectrum at all,i strum useing the nail on my index finger i manage well enough and try to avoid any music that requires a capo from the third fret downover,as this makes the strings so taught it causes my finger to split.i am now learning to use my other fingers to strum so if i do damage my index finger i can carry on playing till it repaires its self.

just to keep upyourkilt happy my song request is     i own a crafter and a yamaha also.

thats good advice bootleger and i used a craft knife to score the outline of the nut before i started to remove it,but the person who assembled my guitar must have had a couple of tubes of glue he wanted to use up,so thats why i used the hot screwdriver method.

when i removed the old plastic nut from my guitar,it broke and left a lot of plastic and
glue i heated the end of a screwdriver on a ring on my cooker and pushing from either
end of the fingerboard [not from the centre outwards to avoid damage to the fingerboard] it was a easy task to prepare for the new nut. i hope this helps anyone else who is about to do this. thanks again tibernius
