"The Sound of Silence", is a song written by Paul Simon and recorded by the music duo Simon and Garfunkel. The song was released in 1964.
The song, which helped the duo get a record deal, was on their debut album titled, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M., which was a commercial failure and lead to the duo breakup. The two did get back together after the song was remixed and hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1966.
My goal, as always, is to create a super easy piano arrangement that sounds good and is fun to play. I learned "The Sound of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel from a lead sheet, which is sheet music that just shows the right-hand melody and chord symbols.
Before I knew any chords, it would take me weeks to learn a new song. After I started learning chords, I could learn a new song in less than an hour. I was able to do this because I no longer had to read the music notes on the bass clef.
