I was under the impression that most sarangi players played with their cuticles; but the Sorrel book and the Joep book apparently both say that most players play with their fingernails, and I was also told this by a teacher- that I was in the minority that use their cuticles.

Which is true, do more players use their nails or cuticles to stop the strings?

I play with my nails my teacher uses the cuticles. Which ever is comfortable for you - go for it.

Thank you- I'm not interested in advice, I'm curious if there is any standard that the majority of players use. I had thought from various things I have read/heard that most players use/have used their cuticles, and recently I've discovered I may be mistaken. Is there any trend as to what players used several generations ago compared to what players use now, or has it always been very mixed?
