Welcome to “Symphonic Guitars” podcast#7
Today we are we are finishing up the “Experiments In Sound” series.

This is Volume 4 of a 4 part series and today’s featured tracks are “Miracle Mile” and “Into The Ether”

Miracle Mile” started out as a conceptual idea of life in the roaring 20’s and how a certain portion of Wilshire Blvd in Los Angeles came to be the epicenter of progress during the great depression. This track features my 68’ Gibson SG and the Line6 Flextone3 amp.

Into The Ether” takes us into the stratosphere and was inspired by the amazing accomplishments by the good folks at NASA. This song features my custom ¾ scale size Fender Duosonic and all electric guitar tracks were recorded direct using the Line6 DM4 Distortion Modeler

Both tracks make use of “BFD drums” by fxpansion and everything was recorded on a pro tools LE system!
As always, Thank you for listening and be sure to visit http://www.dansindel.us for Symphonic Guitar Driven Classics – Mp3’s, Videos and More…

Listen to Dan Sindel – Danny Boy

Lyrics for Danny Boy
Lyrics: Frederic Edward Weatherly
Music: Traditional

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer’s gone, and all the flowers are dying
‘Tis you, ’tis you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when summer’s in the meadow
Or when the valley’s hushed and white with snow
‘Tis I’ll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.

And if you come, when all the flowers are dying
And I am dead, as dead I well may be
You’ll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an “Ave” there for me.

And I shall hear, tho’ soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be
If you’ll not fail to tell me that you love me
I’ll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

I’ll simply sleep in peace until you come to me

St. Patricks Day - Danny Boy
Lyrics for Londonderry Air
Lyrics: Unknown
Music: Traditional

Would God I were the tender apple blossom
That floats and falls from off the twisted bough,
To lie and faint within your silken bosom,
Within your silken bosom as that does now!
Or would I were a little burnish’d apple
For you to pluck me, gliding by so cold,
While sun and shade your robe of lawn will dapple,
Your robe of lawn, and your hair’s spun gold.

Yea, would to God I were among the roses
That lean to kiss you as you float between,
While on the lowest branch a bud uncloses,
A bud uncloses, to touch you, queen.
Nay, since you will not love, would I were growing,
A happy daisy, in the garden path;
That so your silver foot might press me going,
Might press me going even unto death.

I’ll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.
St. Patricks Day - Danny Boy
