Sound of Silence (Intro Harmony)

Animated Sound of Silence (Intro Harmony) tab by Simon & Garfunkel on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

We've already looked at the main guitar for this song here. Here we show the second guitar. This plays the harmony during the intro. It also needs a capo placed on your guitar at fret 6.

The fingerpicking style is also the same - Travis picking. This style of fingerpicking allows you to get consistent alternating bass notes (played by your thumb), while your fingers play the higher notes along the top strings. Only the Thumb, 1st and 2nd fingers are used. If you are new to fingerpicking, working through our Fingerpicking section will help you get started.

We've taken out the main guitar here so you can focus on just this harmony played by guitar 2. You can still hear both in the normal speed audio.

This guitar comes in one bar after the main guitar. It's slightly easier to play, and quite short.
