Thinking about taking some guitar lessons? As per his Craigslist posting on Sunday, Roger Miller -- of the recently reunited Mission of Burma -- could be your private teacher. The only catch: He lives in Boston (though it might be worth the weekly commute). He writes:
"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."
