All these songs reached number topped the charts around the world.
Even after all these years, the song has managed to capture millions of hearts. Even the newer generation can’t resist the beauty of the song. You might have seen many renditions of the song online. Each one is special in its own way, but the one shown in the following video has to be one of the most unique takes on the song you might have ever heard. If you love this song, you’ll surely love this version!
Meet Jamie Dupuis. He decided to cover Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence”, and his version is both captivating and haunting. He uses an 18-string harp to play the song, and it’s simply too good to be true. The harped guitar is special because of the addition of one or more plucked strings that are added on top and bottom of the instrument. It creates a beautiful sound, especially when strummed softly like Jamie does in the video.
The gentle melodies, performed in the middle of a quiet forest, just sounded so soothing, don’t you agree? Check out this amazing video below:
