Refret for my #1 guitar Barbara

Brad Thompson's guitar Barbara

I recently had some major work done on my #1 guitar Barbara. I have Mark Cigainero out of Fort Worth, TX do all my work – he’s really one of the best. Refret, new saddle and nut and we planed the fretboard so it plays totally different now!

I named my guitar as a nod to Michael Hedges (1953-1997). His primary live guitar was a Martin he named Barbara because she had been in so many bars.

Brad and his keytar

I’m going to Facebook just about everyday and doing something live. Sometimes it’s just me fixing my hair, or maybe I’m serenading someone who is in self-quarantine, other times I’ll play a concert in my home.
