I finally had chance to transcribe Tim Miller piece from this youtube clip (from 1:27 to 2:10):
 [video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=7YNoPecFBO8#t=86s[/video]

It's beatiful short piece and it reminds me of Eric Johnson, Pat Metheny and Julian Lage, and maybe some of Ted's Baroque stuff. It's basically study of open triads w/ some seventh chords thrown in. In addition to apparent picking and fingering problems, chords change in groups of threes, fours and twos creating ever shifting time signature. Pulse of the piece is almost all eight notes, though. I put the number of eighth notes per chord/inversion in parenthesis after chord symbols.   

I did it with pen, paper and Microsoft word so there are probably typos and some errors too.

Thanks BLC!

Couple of small corrections:
- in line 6, fourth chord is G/D (not G/B)
- m7b7 chords are actually dimiminshed triads.
- in line 4 where piece modulates to A, I would include the first A chord to A-section though

- hardest part for me is in line 3, Bm7b5(3) Bm7b5(3) (actually Bdim(3) Ddim(3)). It seems that Tim fingers it middle, index, ring (Bdim) then position jump and middle, first, ring (Ddim)  

I have played it fingerstyle w/acoustic for couple of days now. I think next I will start to work it pickstyle. Then, I'll try to have it under control with distortion (yeah, I do like Eric Johnson a lot).
