Paul Simon, one of the 100 people who shaped our world!
Paul Simon is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, both as half of the folk-singing duo Simon and Garfunkel and also as a solo artist. In 2006, Time magazine called him one of the one hundred people who shape our world.
Paul Simon’s hits are many including ‘Homeward Bound’, ‘Scarborough Fair‘, ‘You Can Call Me Al’, ‘The Boxer’, ‘Cecilia’, ‘Mrs Robinson’ and ‘Graceland’.
However, he has created some incredible songs that never became massive hits. ‘Tenderness‘ is such an example.
‘Tenderness’ is not just an awesome song, it’s a proper test in understanding musical harmony as seemingly every trick in the book has been applied here! I spend several lessons dissecting the song in the master course.
Below is the original studio performance, enjoy!
