Hazy Shade of Winter

“A Hazy Shade of Winter”, written by Paul Simon, was released by Simon & Garfunkel on October 22, 1966 as a stand-alone single. It was subsequently included on the duo’s fourth studio album, Bookends (1968). The song peaked at number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100.

In 1987, The Bangles recorded a cover version of the song that peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100.

My instrumental version is based heavily on the Simon and Garfunkel original, but has a beefier, thicker sound due to the use of a baritone guitar for what was the original 12-string riff — and also more rhythm parts.
