Dave Barnes in Birmingham, AL

I just got the confirmation that I’ll be working Mr. Barnes’ merch table at his show on March 1.

So if you go (and you SHOULD go) to the show, then you can find my bald head behind the table selling CDs, T-shirts, and more…

Visit www.davebarnes.com for more dates and details.
By the way, Dave’s new CD will be available on April 1, but on www.davebarnes.com, you can pre-order. Also, on Tuesdays you can check out www.davebarnes.com for a listen to a new track from the new CD.
Dave Barnes is not an elaborate hoax
I mean, geez, John Mayer loves him


Last night was fantastic. As soon as I finished up at work in the Loan Office, I took off to grab a bottle of water from the bookstore. I managed to convince myself that I needed a sharpie as well. So…as I was leaving the bookstore, I recognized someone. Who? Well, I’ll tell you in a few more minutes.

I gingerly walked over to the young man and asked, “Hey, could you do me a favor?”

Mystery person: “Uh, sure. What can I help you out with, man?”

Gingerly: “Would you sign my guitar?!?”

Mystery person: “Sure!!! I’d be glad to do that for you!”

We chatted a little bit about my guitar, the fact that mice don’t really grow on trees, he looks different in normal dress than in his Superman Suit, and if I was going to sell my guitar now that he had signed it.

I told him that I had absolutely no intentions of selling my guitar. Especially since he had signed it. I told him that I had to run and hated the fact that I would miss most of his concert, but that I would come up and check it out as soon as I finished teaching my guitar class. He thanked me for taking a minute, I did the same.

Who was it, you may ask??? DAVE BARNES!!!

Who’s Dave Barnes? What, you don’t know, Dave?

Well, he does have a lot of faces. Maybe you know Granny or Superman or Dahweed Barness.
Either way, the guy is fantastic, down to earth, and an all around funny guy.
So now that the Yamaha is signed, that makes both of my guitars autographed by famous people. the Yamaha is signed by Dave Barnes and the Epi Zephyr is signed by Benny Garcia. I’m two for two.
I either have to get another guitar to have signed or just start letting everyone sign the Yamaha.
