"One of the most exciting and innovative guitarists performing today." -- Pickin'
At the age of 12, John Miller was inspired to play the guitar after seeing Mississippi John Hurt perform at the Philadelphia Folk Festival. He bought his first guitar at the age of 16 and launched into an intensive period of study of Country Blues guitar, learning the music of John Hurt, Mance Lipscomb, Bo Carter, Blind Blake and other greats. By the time he was twenty-seven, John had released five solo albums to international critical acclaim. Those albums ranged from Country Blues and Old Time country music to the songs of George Gershwin. For the next 15 years, John focused on teaching, founding two music camps, composing and building a vocabulary in Jazz and Latin music.
Tunes performed: Bye Bye Blackbird, Let The Mermaids Flirt With Me, Mistreating Mama Blues, Shake 'em On Down, Jailhouse Blues, Easy Rider Blues, Rocks and Gravel, Hey There Check out John's DVD lessons at www.guitarvideos.com.
