Jamie Dupuis has recorded a second Linkin Park song on his harp guitar due to phenomenal demand.
The award-winning Canadian fingerstyle player and harp guitarist released a tribute to the band’s late frontman Chester Bennington, who was lost under tragic circumstances in July, covering their hit Numb on his custom Synergy X20 harp guitar.
Following the release of the tribute, which notched up over 300,000 views on YouTube, the was phenomenal demand from viewers wanting to see Jamie cover one of the band’s other big hits, In The End, and of course the affable musician obliged to fans soon after.
“Hey everyone! Here’s a very ambient version of the In The End, I took two of the main parts and made it into a chill harp guitar cover. This isn’t a NOTE FOR NOTE type thing, basically just a chill improvised version. Thanks for watching!”
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.
