Klaus Waldburg, one of my admired zither virtuosi, uploaded a new piece:

This time, we get to have a look at his hands, and we can see his left-hand thumb protection. I sure would like to get comments and recommendations on that subject - my thumbnail doesn't recover well if I overdo practicing ...

One of our zither players from the Philadelphia area used to go to a nail salon just for one nail, his thumb nail. I got to see it and it looked like it was holding up well. He swore by it.
