George Faulkner

I have recently begun to record an album of my country blues influence music. I want this album to feel like the old field recordings from the 20’s and 30’s. I have been recording live in an open room, much like a lot of the blues greats did. They often recorded in an old shack, store-room, or on special occasion a hotel room.  I enlisted my long time friend George Faulkner to record me and we have had 3 sessions so far. we are getting close. 3 more tracks to lay down and then the mastering can begin.

We got together again last night and it was a particularly fun session. In between songs we took a few breaks and George noodled around on my guitars. After recording a few tracks with my Cigar Box Guitar (one of which was a sweet little instrumental track using a knife as a slide.  See my music page for a picture), George grabbed it and came up with this little diddie right away.


And a pic.

I am also working on  a CBG for George as payment for the recording sessions. A little old-time bartering came into play. Here is how his is coming along so far. Cool box!

  1. Damn that’s the coolest jam yet Craig. Like George Harrison or something.

  2. Hey – good news about your album – I’m looking forward to having a listen 🙂
    Best, Chris
