Walker soaked in the sounds and practiced, and his discipline paid off: At age 26, he has superior chops, mature tone, impressive musicality, and advanced mastery of the instrument. He recorded Primrose Green —his second full-length album—in Chicago. It reminds me of those Joni Mitchell albums with Jaco Pastorius. Those albums are great.
The Infinite in the Finite
How much leeway do you give your sidemen to jam or create parts? They are some of the best musicians in the world, really great improvisers. Describe your composing process. A lot of new songs come from messing around with tunings. I just sit around at home and try to find a new weird tuning, and then I improvise off that until it eventually becomes a song.
The Infinite Power of Hope
Do you have certain go-to tunings? Not go-to tunings, but there are ones that are a little more prominent on the record.
- I Was Fated to Love You.
- Actions and Detail Panel.
- The Infinite Within by Michael Drakich!
- The French army before Napoleon: lectures delivered before the University of Oxford in Michaelmas term, 1914.
- Mind Factory.
Tunings are like buried treasure, man. Where did you get that tuning? Like what? I love that tuning and use it on quite a few tunes.
Its range is so sick and you can find a nice melody all over it. What are some others?

John Martyn used that one a lot. I really like that—you just tune the G string all the way down to D.
