Bulgaria: Bulgarian Students to Teach Dominic Miller Play in 7/8 Time

Bulgarian music and dance students claim they have something to teach Dominic Miller, the Argentine-English guitarist best known for his long-time association with Sting.

On May 28, a day before the talented musician please quality music fans with a concert at the Antique Roman Theatre in the city of Plovdiv,  students from the art academy there will stage an open lesson for him, including Authentic local rhythms and the typical of this part of Europe playing in 7/8 time.

Dominic Miller plans to return the gesture with an open musical workshop for guitar players.

In Bulgaria the musician, whom many describe as the right and left hand of Sting, will promote his new album "5th House".

Miller and Sting have recorded 7 albums. The two have toured extensively since 1990 performing over 1,000 shows and co-writing many songs together, the most known being "Shape of my Heart".

The guitarist has behind his back about 200 albums with other artists, including Phil Collins and the Pretenders.

His solo career features 7 albums of instrumental music, as well as occasional short tours.

"I treat instrumental compositions as if they are songs. This is partly influenced by working with singers and songwriters. I enjoy complete solidarity with these albums because I have no pressure to succeed," says Miller.

The keenly awaited gig will be by far not the first visit of the famous guitarist to Bulgaria. Only a year ago, in May 2011, Dominic Miller made ??two consecutive solo performances in the framework of Sofia Live Club, only to return a month later with Sting for his concert at the stadium "Georgi Asparuhov".
