I've been taught that the proper way to place the fingers on the fingerboard is perpendicular to it. Is this right? If so, I've got a large problem because my fingernails are in the way. I've tried cutting them, but I can't seem to cut them short enough to achieve "perpendicularity". Are my fingernails just attached too far down? Any suggestions?
