Huge Collings fan, but also love Raghead (brand name) instruments.
Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Jed Clark is a multi-instrumentalist from the Central Arkansas town of Searcy. Jed's first serious musical endeavor was enrolling in guitar lessons from a local college guitar instructor at age 12. Initially Jed was guided towards fingerstyle guitarists that spanned many different genres of music and were highly creative such as Pete Hutlinger, Doyle Dykes, and Andy McKee just to name a few. Howev...er as time progressed and Jed's younger brother Harry, who was learning mandolin at the same time, began to participate in more and more Bluegrass oriented jam sessions, Jed was drawn towards the social aspect of the Bluegrass music, leading him to pursue the art of flatpicking. Never wanting to be limited, Jed has taken many of the inventive and theoretical aspects of his initial fingerstyle instruction and attempted to apply them to his flatpicking style creating a sound that is uniquely distinguishable as his own.

Jed's guitar playing has taken him to many different states across the midwest playing with his brother's and his band, "The Jed and Harry Clark Band." The brothers along with their bandmates; John Meyer, Will Rhodes, and mother Cindy won the National Youth in Bluegrass Band Contest that is held annually in Branson Missouri's own Silver Dollar City in May of 2010.

Multi-instrumentalist Bill Nesbitt of Little Rock commissioned Jed and Harry to join his Central Arkansas based Gypsy Jazz acoustic group in late 2009. Unlike brother Harry, Jed was assigned to play his secondary instrument, the upright bass. Being presented with the unique challenge of playing a foreign genre of music, Jed relied heavily on Nesbitt's extensive knowledge of the genre, its songs, and its appropriate execution to fulfill his role. Nesbitt is credited with having provided one of the key learning experiences that has challenged and sharpened Jed's bass playing.

More recently, Jed's guitar playing has placed him in the company of The Roys - http://www.theroysonline.com/ and taken him all across the U.S. and even into Canada.

Jed is scheduled to release his first solo project in Early 2012. Please like this page to stay updated on upcoming events regarding Jed's music!

Hi Jed,

I'm out of town and just had a chance to get online for a few minutes ... my laptop battery is about dead. Thanks for your kind comments.

I'm pleased that you learned Boys & Girls ... it always brings back fond memories of Quinn & Jennifer as little children.

Keep with the crosspicking, it's a very useful technique.

Take care.

Jed - Yes, my alter ego. A gift from someone who recognized my true cartoonish guitar skills.

I use Wegen 140 large triangle picks, and the D'addario J17 strings. Usually in the studio, I use tortoise shell picks.

In answer to the pick... i have no idea what kind I use. Somebody gave me one at a festival several years back, and i havent been able to put it down. Its rounded on all three sides... if that helps to ID it...

Well, i had planned on going to winfield all year... practiced like a madman... tore the callouses off my fingers.... you know.... but stuff recently came up, and i cant go. At least not this year.

I play a Collings D-1. I just got it eight months ago. Oh, and fly-by is one of my pieces... I just wrote that a couple weeks ago.

good picking! Talk soon, i hope?
