THE SOUND OF SILENCE
Made a new discovery today!
This is one of my favorite songs ever!
I grew up to this music.
Simon and Garfunkel’s music made it to Puerto Rico.
I remember the many nights in my bedroom, as a teen, listening to this song.
Incredible cover, amazing instrument!
Just lay back, close your eyes and be transported to another time … a time of love and sweetness.
A man named Jamie Dupuis‘ rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence” is both captivating and haunting. Jamie, a guitarist and composer from Canada, plays the song on an 18-string harp guitar, and it’s getting a lot of attention for its mesmerizing melody.
Even without his voice, it’s easy to repeat the lyrics in your head
“Hello darkness, my old friend,
I’ve come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence”
A harped guitar is distinctive due to the addition of one or more plucked strings that float on top of the instrument. It creates a beautiful sound, especially when strummed softly like Jamie does in the video.
On top of that, his choice of song couldn’t be more fitting, especially as he sits in the midst of a peaceful forest.
Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel recorded “The Sound of Silence” in 1964 and it hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100.
Paul wrote the song when he was just 21-years-old.
“As it appears in … full read/full credit”
