The sound of silence

The sound of silence

Postby JohnT » 08 Jul 2018 19:25

Hi Everyone Thought I would give this one an air. Got carried away and played it three times. The song was written by Paul Simon and duo with Art Garfunkel. The song was originally titled The sound of silence. You may wish it had been silent when I played it. Played on the Tyros 5 with an 8 beat. Hope you enjoy here goes. John

Hi John,

That was very good, choice for the challenge, some real nice appropriate voices you choose and liked the way you varied them

John. I always feel this melody has a lot of drama built into it. You brought out all the dramatic nuances beautifully. .. Fred

John,

If that's the sound of silence, then silence is a wonderful sound! Very nice authentic sounding 'guitar' followed by that piano with a hint of strings in the background. Then some very pleasant strings. This must be one of the best pieces I have heard you play!

Hi there I have played from the age of 13 and all my music is played in a sort of dance tempo style. Have worked in nearly all the North East clubs over the years. That gave me a good grounding. Cheers.
