Guy Clark QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
Ain't no chance if you don't take it.
Quotation of Guy Clark
All gut strings. That's just the first kind of guitar I played, it was a nylon string guitar. And to me, it's the purest form of guitar making, and I just enjoy doing it.
Quotation of Guy Clark
And it's just something that's always come very naturally to me. And I built about, I don't know, six, seven, eight guitars in Texas in the late 60s.
Quotation of Guy Clark
But by the time you get there and you get home, it winds up being a lot of time out. So I'm getting the itch to build, I know that. I keep looking at my stacks of wood and what I can do with it.
Quotation of Guy Clark
Chris is the engineer down at the studio where we do these things. And he's just such an integral part and he has such a marvelous ear. Also it turns out, we didn't know, but he's a pretty good fiddle player.
Quotation of Guy Clark
Darrell is really good in the studio. I mean, he has a real working knowledge of how the process works, and what sounds good coming back over tape, and how the stuff works together.
Quotation of Guy Clark
I don't know what the outcome will be. I put a couple away for my grandkids, like that. So I don't know, who knows? Maybe I'll start building guitars for a living.
Quotation of Guy Clark
I get pretty much all the exercise I need walking down airport concourses carrying bags.
Quotation of Guy Clark
I have no reason to sit home and write songs all day without going out and playing for the folks. And I have no reason to go play for the folks unless I'm writing new songs so they can sort of feed off one another. And I just try to do the best I can.
Quotation of Guy Clark
I just was apologizing for maybe being a little goofy.
Quotation of Guy Clark
I love playing and I love singing, and the writing. There's kind of a symbiotic relationship between the writing and the playing.
Quotation of Guy Clark
I'm not a big fan of layered productions.
Quotation of Guy Clark
I've known Shawn for several years. And he's just an amazing talent. He's a great writer, a marvelous, marvelous guitar player, and plays really good fiddle.
Quotation of Guy Clark
It was really amazing. I mean, he'd never mentioned that he played in the symphony, like serious violin playing, not fiddle playing. And he just blew us away.
Quotation of Guy Clark
It's just something I've always done. In South Texas, the first guitar you get is a Mexican guitar. And the first one I got, the first thing I did was take it apart.
Quotation of Guy Clark
Mary Gauthier's great. Yeah, we've played a lot of gigs together. She's really wonderful.
Quotation of Guy Clark
There aren't any rules, as far as anything-and that applies especially to writing songs, whatever gets the point across. So you're just kind of brought up to feel-in any field, if you say you can do it, do it. There it is.
Quotation of Guy Clark
Things change all the time, and they'll probably never be the same again. It's just the natural evolution of the human condition. Things change, and whatever it is is what it is. I mean, you try to start second guessing that, you either get rich or die broke.
Quotation of Guy Clark
Well, Darrell is a stunning musician. I mean, he plays anything. The only thing I've never heard him play is a fiddle, and I bet he could.
Quotation of Guy Clark
Well, I had a fiddle that I really can't play, so I loaned it to Darrell. But yeah, he's from another planet.
Quotation of Guy Clark
Well, I've been up in Santa Fe and Boulder, Colorado, and I hadn't been sick in years, and somehow caught something.
Quotation of Guy Clark
What I set out to do was write songs that people would do. I do them, of course, but they're out there for anyone to do.
