Harp guitar and fingerstyle player Jamie Dupuis has paid tribute to legendary rock band Rush in his latest cover video.
A band synonymous with Jamie Dupuis’ home country, it is only fitting that the award-winning musician paid tribute to Rush with his arrangement of Closer To The Heart on his custom Synergy X20 harp guitar.
He said: “When I first started playing guitar I was learning a lot of Rush tunes even though I struggled a lot since they write complex music! But they’re been a great inspiration for me!”
Jamie Dupuis shot to international fame when his harp guitar cover version of Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd went viral over a year ago. We are honoured that he plays an Emerald Custom Shop Synergy X20 harp guitar.
Some of most recent arrangements and covers for harp guitar include 1980s classic The Final Countdown by Europe, Everybody Wants To Rule The World by Tears For Fears and Metallica’s The Unforgiven which has notched up over one million views on YouTube.
The Synergy X20 is an uncompromising full size harp guitar designed to give a rich full bodied and balanced acoustic experience on the neck coupled with loud powerful sub bass strings in a modern and ergonomic design.
As we have developed our harp guitar range we have come to recognise the many benefits that carbon fibre allows in the design and construction of these wonderful instruments.
Our moulding technology offers us the ability to create a much more sculpted and ergonomic shape that offers great comfort and balance to the player. The strength of carbon helps us create a light weight and responsive top that can easily take the heavy strain of the sub bass strings.
