Published Jul 11, 2007Stink at the guitar? Live in Boston? Well, singer/songwriter/guitarist Roger Miller of legendary post-punkers Mission of Burma has put his guitar expertise up for sale on Craigslist.
In the post, Miller writes:
"I am a very experienced guitarist, composing, touring and recording. I have recorded over 40 albums, and remain active as guitarist/singer/songwriter with Boston's Mission of Burma. Our last CD, The Obliterati, got rave reviews from Spin, Rolling Stone, etc. I have also been a producer for other bands.
"Mr. Miller can summon up three decades of guitar sounds." N.Y.Times
Beginners through Advanced. Weekly basis or a one-time session to open potential. I am primarily known for unorthodox techniques and approaches to the guitar. However, I have a very wide interest in guitar music. While most of my notoriety stems from the post-punk era, I studied composition at California Institute of the Arts, and enjoy playing blues. I have played piano all my life. I am currently keyboardist/composer in The Alloy Orchestra, a three-piece silent film accompanying ensemble that tours film festivals all over the US performing our scores to classic silents like "Metropolis", "Nosferatu", and lesser known classics. We have many DVD releases to our name. Our touring will take us to Khazakstan next spring.
Please feel free to contact me if you are interested. I tailor what I teach to an individual's interests.
Thanks for reading.
