Miroslav Tadic has been named by the editors of Guitar Player Magazine as one of the 30 most radical and individual guitarists in the world. In recent years, he has concentrated on developing an approach to improvisation which combines and juxtaposes musical material drawn from many diverse sources, including baroque, European classical, North Indian classical music, Eastern European folk traditions, blues, jazz and rock. He is noted for his pioneering work in applying the elements of classical and flamenco techniques to the electric guitar.

Tadic completed his formal education in the U.S. after studying in Italy and his native Yugoslavia. He has performed and recorded in a wide variety of settings and musical styles, ranging from music of the baroque and classical periods to blues, jazz and rock. Tadic's performing and recording credits include projects with Terry Riley, Vinko Globokar, the Los Angeles Opera with Placido Domingo, Howard Levy, Joachim Kuhn, L. Shankar, Mark Nauseef, Markus Stockhausen, David Torn, Maria João, Jack Bruce, John Bergamo and Wadada Leo Smith, among others.

He is frequently heard performing in Europe, Japan and the U.S., and his numerous recordings on a number of American, European and Japanese labels have won international critical acclaim.
