Pachelbel Canon in D (fingerstyle guitar)

TAB AVAILABLE, READ ON…I decided that I would learn to play this tune for my daughters wedding. Seeing as she is only 3, I’ve got plenty of time to practise – which is lucky, for many reasons…

Yes, I am staring at the tab while I play; I can’t do this one from memory yet. It was arranged by Chief Noda but modified a bit for playability by me.

You can get the tab, mp3 and other resources at:

Canon in D (Classical guitar) by Johann Pachelbel

Hi there! I made this arrangement this weekend. Actually I was starting on an arrangement for Beatles “The Fool on the Hill” but ended up with this. Don’t ask me how.
This is not exactly a “canon”. It’s more a Passacaglia. The “vamp” D A Bm F#m G D G A. is repeated all the time with variations.
I hope you like my version.
Sheet music and TAB’s can be purchased and downloaded at


Thanks to Marie for listening to me and making brilliant suggestions. You are my inspiration always!
Kiss to you and hugs to all others :-)
