"Hi Clay. Could you tell me where I could purchase the music notation to "I Know Why"? Or just the guitar chords would do, as well. I have the lyrics. I love your music. Dorothy Stall email@example.com"
"Clay, as all ways good to hear you and see you, have a blessed Easter, I'm sure, looking forward to maybe seeing you in Aug. again 'wink' and the fruit don't fall far from the tree.
Craig and Laura."

Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I have been playing guitar with Sierra Hull and highway 111 since jan 1 2009. I played with Mountain Heart from september 2007 to jan 1 2009.. Prior to that, I played guitar and mandolin with the Mark Newton Band (2004-2007), and Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder(1999-2002)
Hey Mr. Hess! This is Jed Clark, you may or many not remember me from Branson. Sierra, that one banjo dude, smiley (bass), and yourself jammed with us at that hotel.
I recently ordered a new guitar. I took your advice and got the Adorondak spruce top and forward shifted x-bracing. Thanks again for jamming with us!
You were the reason i bought the D-18V Clay Hess #6,(but sold it later due to it's big neck).
Bought your dvd also and your cds Clay.
I'm definitely a fan of yours.
Hope i can get the chance to meet you someday,Clay in U.S.!
Keep on picking so good!
Clay, thought I'd let you know that you've really inspired my picking and got me motivated to seriously improve my flatpicking. Your version of Beaumont Rag of all things (on the MFG website a few years back) is what really got me going. As luck would have it, once I got my flatpicking skills going, I immediately got hired as a mandolin player in a local band!
Glad to see you're playing in a band again. Too bad you mid-west type guys don't make it to the other side of the Rockies very often. Us northwest pickers are in constant bluegrass starvation mode and I've always wanted to see you perform in person. Maybe Mountain Heart could sneak on over to the Boise, Idaho area sometime.
Hey Cless, all the best from Germany, hope you didn´t mind me adding your wonderful "I know why" ("http://de.youtube.com/watch?v=Y15BqO6SriE) to YouTube. I recorded the whole gig and I was so impressed by you!!! If you´d like t o have a copy of that concert (at the Feed & Seed" with Ron Block) please let me know! Matthias
"While I have never bought an acoustic/electric, all of my guitars have after-market pick-ups installed and some of them have larger buttons. I managed to get straps on all of them, but my cases are roomy enough that I never remove the…"

"I thought I'd see what the pros use, so a bit of Googling found that:

"Yes Ken...I am talking about the input jack pins that hold the strap and also allow the quarter inch input plug to connect to the electronics of the guitar. You can't take those plugs out to put the strap on or you will damage the electronics.…"
"Kenneth, I think Downtown Freddy is talking about the end pin buttons with a female phone plug in the middle, which are not easily removable and often require a larger strap hole than the standard end pins."
