Martin Miller marries virtuosic mechanical technique with astounding musical creativity. We’ve put together a two-interview package which presents an incredible learning opportunity in both dimensions.
Interview 1: Martin’s Mechanics
We often think of really good players as being able to “play anything”. Even though we know that’s an illusion, Martin’s right hand technique almost makes you believe it!
In this first mechanically-minded interview with Martin, we got to the bottom of his stunning picking technique — an approach that reads like a greatest hits of modern approaches, mixing one-way pickslanting, two-way pickslanting, and crosspicking in equal parts.
Interview 2: Martin’s Music
It’s one thing to understand music theory, and another to apply it to the complex arrangement of overlapping strings and repeated notes on the guitar. In this second interview with Martin, we deconstruct his process for improvising over flowing chord changes, arriving at a simple checklist that anyone can follow to start developing a mature improvisational vocabulary.
For experienced jazz and fusion players, this is an interesting glimpse into the workflow of an ace soloist. And if you’ve ever considered getting under the hood with jazz harmony and improvisation, this a great primer on how that kind of work is done.
