Guitar Lead Sheet Now Available for "The Sound of Silence" as Performed by Disturbed

Posted by Michael Mueller on July 15, 2016 at 11:19 AM

Simon and Garfunkel's timeless hit "The Sound of Silence" certainly isn't the obvious choice of cover song for one of the biggest and best metal bands of past 15 years, but Chicago rockers Disturbed have boldly brought the 1960s classic into the 21st century in their own inimitable fashion.

The band, known for its highly rhythmic manner of pummeling chords and beats into submission, took a minimalist approach on this track, relying on the dynamics and power of singer David Draiman. The cover primarily features piano accompaniment, with just a few acoustic guitar arpeggios and fills throughout.

The new guitar lead sheet from Hal Leonard features the arpeggios in the intro and outro sandwiching a chords and lyrics chart in the middle. Aside from those opening and closing phrases, you can improvise your own arpeggio patterns for the verse and chorus chords, or just strum throughout.
