Hey guys, I have a real quick question.

I've recently started trying to get serious about practicing guitar again (and by recently, I mean yesterday.)  I do have one nagging problem though--I have long nails.  Even after I clip them as much as possible, my fingers are naturally pointy, with the nails protruding over my fingertips.  It makes playing chords incredibly difficult for me, because I have to flatten out my fingers to the point that they start rubbing against the other strings.

So, will this problem eventually go away once I get more used to playing guitar and developing my finger muscles, or will I have to start filing away at my nails until I have blunter fingers?

To give you guys an idea of what I'm working with:

<---- my index finger

<----- my pinky
