Miller's style is based on the traditional techniques of artists such as Mississippi John Hurt, Blind Blake, Mance Lipscomb, Etta Baker, Big Bill Broonzy and Elizabeth Cotton, all of whom usually maintained a steady bass with the right hand thumb while picking out melody, fills and middle voices with the other fingers.

One way of conceptualizing this style is to think of the right hand thumb as a piano player's left hand and the other fingers as the piano player's right hand.

In his forty five years playing guitar Miller has applied this style to various kinds of music including Blues, Ragtime and Novelty Tunes, Beatles' songs, Jazz Standards and Opera Arias.
