Gary Miles - After 30 years, I'm home again in
Louisiana playing my pedal steel guitar. I was born and raised in
Reserve, Louisiana. Taught by my Father, I started playing acoustic
guitar at age 8. After high school I moved to California to pursue a
career in music. This is where I fell in love with the sound of the
pedal steel guitar. Although I love all styles of music, my love for
Country music and the sound of the BLUES is what inspires me to continue
playing my pedal steel with such passion. I play a MSA 12 string, 5 knee
lever & 5 pedal guitar. I have been playing for over 30 years. Most of
my professional music career has been in California performing with many
West Coast bands.
Some additional talents that I posses include playing other instruments such as Bass guitar, Lead guitar, Keyboards, Harmonica, Accordion, Drums, tenor Saxophone, but I still find my first love to be the Pedal Steel!
For relaxation, I enjoy my daily ritual of practicing the many forms of tai chi.
