Thanks for the St Louis workshop! It was great to hear you play. My 12 year old son was able to see the Bluegrass isn't just for old folk like me!!

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!
Take care!

Hey Clay,

I'm the owner of Martin "Clay Hess" Custom Edition #3. I love it. I hope someday I'll be able to play it well enough to make it sound at least a fraction of it's potential.

Thanks for adding me. I'm still trying to learn at least one of the licks from the video you did with Jon Garon. When are you coming to the Paradise?

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!

Best,
Yiannis

It would be nice to meet you too. I'd rather come to greece though.

Thanks for adding me. I'm a big fan of your unique approach to playing and look forward to hearing you play in Charlotte, NC sometime. The Evening Muse would be a great intimate venue for you.

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.

Oh yeah, another D18V CH owner here.

Hey Clay, I loved the "none" under favorite flatpicking tunes. Just what I would have expected. You know, you're never going to get hired by the Cherryholmes Band this way.

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
