July 2008

Dan Sindel's Symphonic Guitars earn a full page Pro-File in the media giant "Electronic Musician" magazines July 2008 issue.

The article covers quite alot of ground as writer Emile Menasché eloquently summed up Dan's "Symphonic Guitar" approach to multi tracking layer upon layer of guitar tracks to create a huge wall of sound and also talks about his debut release of “Marching In: A Tribute to the March King John Philip Sousa”.

Dan Sindel's Symphonic Guitars earns a write up in "GUITAR PLAYER" magazines April 2008 issue.

The article reads:
(page 36, Speaking of "The Liberty Bell", Michael Molenda editor in chief says)
"A lot of guitarists claim to be "orchestral" players, and the result is often dreadful to my ears, but Sindel is cagey enough to be both hilarious and enjoyable. His reading of this John Sousa march - perhaps best known as the Monty Python theme - is well arranged and goofy. It's whacked out genius!"

Symphonic Guitar Driven Classics - Mp3's, Videos and More…
The creation of this site was a logical component in my experience as a musician as well as a way to "give back" to the music community that has enriched my appreciation for the arts.

For many years music has been the guiding light as a form of expression and creativity and it is my hope and desire that the talents given to me may serve as point of inspiration just as other's before me have encouraged and challenged my desire to develop and realize my dreams.

The main objective is to keep this site entertaining and a fun place to hang out for awhile. There are guitar related Jigsaw puzzles to download and solve, webcam videos to watch and an abundant list of mp3’s I have recorded using my humble little home studio.


About Dan
Spring 1977, it was all over! When Dan heard Jimmy Page hit the open "D" string and toggle the pickup selector switch and launch into the live version of "The Song Remains the Same", he knew his life would never quite "remain the same"...

Having spent a few years playing Trumpet, French Horn and Trombone in various Junior High School Jazz Bands and Orchestra’s Dan was completely oblivious to this style of heavy guitar driven music.

This newfound discovery became a sonic obsession and the first order of business was to learn how to play guitar. At 14, Dan signed up for lessons with an amazing teacher, Philippe Willems (Facts Of Music®) who in turn was a protégé of the Legendary "Chord Chemist" Ted Greene (R.I.P). After a few years studying with Philippe, Dan was fortunate enough to start taking private lessons with Ted Greene and continued to study with Ted on and off for over 20 years."

Dan has been recording an extensive catalog of public domain orchestral works showcasing his musical depth and versatility as well as his own diverse musical compositions. His musical influences range from classical, jazz, ragtime, big band, swing, marching band to rock and heavy metal in all its forms.

Music is his passion and Dan's demo work has been receiving international acclaim, airplay and was voted first place in the 2005 DMusic Awards (www.dmusic.com) in the classical category with his interpretation of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons - The Spring.

Having received "hundreds of thousands" of downloads via his site, blog and podcast's Dan is absolutely thrilled as an upcoming artist to see that so many people are enjoying his "Symphonic Guitar" approach."

Furthering his "Symphonic Guitars" concept, Dan is in production for his debut Album "Marching In - A Tribute to the March King" - John Philip Sousa" working in conjunction with many of music's top mixing/mastering engineers.

"Marching In" has a scheduled April 2008 release date.
