New Video: Toccata And Fugue In D minor (March 2012)

You Rock Guitar sent Dan Mumm to perform on their midi guitar at the 2012 Frankfurt Musikmesse. Below is a video of one of the performances.

New Video: Toccata And Fugue In D minor (March 1st 2012)

More Fugue than Toccata in my new arrangement of J.S. Bach’s masterpiece Toccata and Fugue in D minor. I did my best to keep all of the counterpoint in tact, while still allowing a main melody line to emerge as the “lead guitar” part. My favorite piece of music since I can remember and I’ve always wanted to make my own rock or metal arrangement of it, but wanted to make sure I could do it justice (hence why I’ve waited all of these years to make it). it was extremely challenging but fun and rewarding to make.

New Video: Quoth The Looming Dusk (January 9th 2012)

I just completed a new song entitled “Quoth The Looming Dusk”. This song is a heavy hitting but highly melodic neo-classical piece.

Dan Mumm heads to Shanghai, China to perform and demonstrate the You Rock Guitar at the Music China 2011 Trade Show – Press Release:

Makers of Innovative New Guitar Send Sacramento Area Guitarist

to China

ROSEVILLE, CA – Local guitarist and composer Dan Mumm is heading to Shanghai
October 9 to introduce and demonstrate the “You Rock Guitar” to crowds at the Music
China 2011 Trade Show. Performing both his original music and his virtuoso electric
guitar arrangements of Classical Music, Mumm will showcase the potential and
versatility of this new midi synthesizer guitar.

Mumm, discovered through his performances on YouTube.com by music impresario
Doug Marks, authors a series of advanced instructional guitar DVD’s for Marks’ Metal
Method label. His association with Inspired Instruments, the makers of the You Rock
Guitar, began when Dan contacted the company about testing and reviewing their new
instrument: a digital guitar that looks like a regular guitar but has a unique fretboard
with no real strings that bridges the gap between the music and gaming industries.
Impressed by the video he made with the You Rock Guitar, performing one of his
original compositions, company president Cliff Elion hired Dan to create more videos
demonstrating the instrument. Now the company wants him to be its musical ambassador
to China with a number of such appearances in the works.

Music China, an international trade fair for musical instruments and services has been
called Asia Pacific’s number one music industry event. More than 1,300 exhibitors from
29 countries are expected at this year’s 10th Anniversary Show, running from October 11
through October 14 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Shanghai, China.
Last year, nearly 50,000 visitors from 96 countries were in attendance.

Mumm, whose compositions are available on iTunes and whose playing can be viewed
on http://www.youtube.com/danmummsolo, has never been to Asia and called the trip
a “great opportunity.”

“I’ve always wanted to visit Asia,” he said, “now if I could just learn Chinese in a couple
of weeks!”

Even so, he doesn’t believe he’ll have much trouble communicating.

“After all,” Mumm said, “music is a universal language.”
