In this video, recorded in Peghead Nation’s studio, Australian fingerstyle guitarist Adam Miller performs his original tune “Parker.” Inspired by an archtop guitar built by luthier Ken Parker, “Parker” is a funky solo guitar piece in dropped-D tuning that can also be found on Miller’s 2012 release, Delayed. Based on a repetitive bass line and a simple melody, the piece leaves room for extended variations and improvisations. Playing “Parker” requires close attention to the groove, as well as independence between the picking-hand thumb and fingers. In his Advanced Fingerstyle Workshop segment, Miller shows how to play the piece and discusses some ideas for creative improvisation. To learn more from Miller about playing “Parker” and get tab for some of the sections of the piece, enroll now in the Advanced Fingerstyle Workshop.
