"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 firstname.lastname@example.org"
"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."

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
Can anyone suggest a good audio or music slow downer? I bumped into this software called Song Surgeon but I still want to compare other software maybe there is a better one out there or this could be a good one already.See More

Hey fellow pickers. Recently I have started playing solo gigs around San Diego where I live. As it continues to expand, I find the need to expand my setup more to control my playing volume between rhythm and picking. Watching the Pros, i have noticed that a lot of them use a volume switch of some type, either via a volume pedal or a stomp switch, to increase and decrease volume from the setup depending on the playing mode. Does anyone have any feedback they can share on these types of…See More
