                Sounds of Silence ( Paul Simon )
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/simon_and_garfunkel/sound_of_silence_tab.html ]
     Acoustic version from the Wednesday Morning 3AM album.


Transcribed by Jean-Marc Orliaguet 
( jmo@fy.chalmers.se, http://fy.chalmers.se/~jmo ) 


Note : This acoustic version can be found on the Wednesday Morning 3AM album.
       
       The part which is transcribed here can also be heard on the
       electrically-dubbed version featured on the Sounds of Silence album,
       along with the 12-string guitar part. 

       The first chords ( Amsus2 and G5 ) contain no third note,
       then the tone of the song is clear from the 5th bar only,
       when the tension is released, on the word "again". 


 Capo 6th fret
