Frank Foster was playing a street concert from the Jazzmobile in Harlem. He called for a blues in B-flat. A young tenor player began to play "out" from the first chorus, playing sounds that had no relationship to the harmonic progression or rhythmic setting. Foster stopped him. "What are you doing?" "Just playing what I feel. "Well, feel something in B-flat, mother****er"

John Miller mentioned in current Fretboard Journal

"However, the OM was rediscovered in the late 1960s by players like Eric Schoenberg and John Miller, who felt the guitar's balanced bass-to-treble response was better-suited to the complex fingerstyle technique they were pioneering than the booming bass-heavy sound of dreadnoughts."

Good eye Outfidel, I read the article and missed the reference to John! 

The Fretboard Journal quarterly, IMO, has turned out to be a very fine magazine... it has just gotten better.  It really appeals to me and my various interests - acoustic guitars, electric guitars, oddball fretted instruments, luthiers, players - there seems to always be one country blues or blues related article as well.  We started talking about it here, but never followed up:

Alex, hang on to that out of print first issue -- this issue mentions that one went for 300 bucks on eBay.  I'm holding out for 500.  :P

John:

Will do!

I to like this publication a lot, it's the only guitar mag I get that I read cover-to-cover. Excellent photography.
