About Mickylee
MickyleeA native of Serbia, Miroslav Mirosavljev, also known as Mickylee, lives in in Vienna, Austria, where he has been active in the music scene for many years now.

After getting his Master of Arts Degree in Jazz Guitar and Jazz Composition at the globally renowned University for Music and Dramatic Arts in Graz, where he studied with Guido Jeszenszky, Karl Ratzer, and Karlheinz Czadek, Mickylee concentrated mostly on playing and teaching. However, his portfolio also includes composing music for theater and motion picture. During his long collaboration with Virtual Sheet Music, he has arranged many works for solo guitar as well as other ensembles, such as string quartets, brass quartets, and more.

In 2001, Mickylee won first prize at the International Big Band Composition Contest in Barga, Italy.

He regularly performs in Austria and all across Europe, but he has also played concerts in North America, Africa, and Asia.

On his Youtube Channel, Mickylee has around 400 videos, mostly due to his 2013 project called "Daily Solo," where he posted a video a day for a whole year.

His solo album "deComposing Cats" ensured him a place among the top Jazz/Fusion guitar players in Europe. He is also a member of a Viennese Fusion/Funk band called Inspirational Corner, with which he recorded an album called "Chameleon Lab Explosion." Mickylee also recorded an album called "In the Wheel" with acoustic guitar player Peter Mayer.

In his most recent collaboration with renowned guitar players John Stowell and Ulf Bandgren, Mickylee recorded an album called "A Long Time Coming", which is currently in its pre-production phase.

Besides teaching privately and in the music school in Brunn am Gebirge, Mickylee also gives guitar lectures at the JAM MUSIC LAB Private University Vienna, where he also works as a Dean of Studies.

The B string on my electric guitar seems to over power the other strings. It stands out as a high-pitched sound above the others, although it's not out of tune. Any suggestions?

Hello and thank you for your question. Unfortunately, Mickylee has been unable to reply to you and asked me to help you instead.

I am not a guitarist, but as a violinist, I can tell you that that may be due to either a string coming from a different set from the other ones (i.e. a different brand), or your guitar needs to be tweaked at the pickup level. I'd suggest taking it to a guitar shop and ask them for advice.

Please, let me know if you have any further questions, and my apologies again for the not-perfect answer.

All the best,

Hi Mickylee, above your guitar pieces you have strum patterns & picking patterns- how do I know which patterns to use, for e.g what is pattern 4, or pattern 2 ?
