Martin Miller: Mechanics

We sat down with fusion ace Martin Miller to investigate the inhuman precision of his hyper-speed crosspicking technique. What we ended up with was even better.

In a wide-ranging conversation, we got to the bottom of Martin’s stunning right-hand approach that reads like a greatest hits of modern picking technique, mixing one-way pickslanting, two-way pickslanting, and crosspicking in equal parts.

But we also get a glimpse into the thought process of an expert soloist and improviser, including composition, fretboard navigation in the CAGED system, and more.

NOTE: We’re still working on Martin’s clips, but they’ll be connected to his interview timeline soon!
