Hayes mahogany/red spruce unbelievable!
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

"Hi! I'lm in a similar position as I recently started taking Bryan Sutton's online video lessons. So far, the experience has been transforming, but also difficult as I realized I had to unlearn a few bad habits. I, as well, used to rest my…"
Hey FPers!Could use some advice, or just start a discussion, on the merits of strum patterns that go both up and down, versus Boom-Chuck with straight down strokes.I bring this up as I have recently broken the habit of resting my wrist on the bridge after many years of struggle. The result is that I am faster, cleaner, and am now able to play with a heavier pick. I now imitate the Brian Sutton model with a pinky posted to the pick guard.While this has made my speed on fiddle tunes and…See More
