I play Canon in D on two guitars: classical ( pre-recorded ) and on my Gibson Les Paul Studio. This version is taken mostly from “Challenge the Masters” guitar book by John Tapella. My guitar lesson website: http://www.bobsguitarlessons.yolasite.com
A comedian rants about how much it sucks to play Pachelbel’s Canon in D on a cello. Recorded live at Penn State, this piece by comedian/musician Rob Paravonian has been a favorite on the Dr. Demento Show.
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.

Trivia: Normally it is PIMA, Guitar pro shows TIMA, thats why I annotate the right fingers as TIMA
Trivia: The chord play at top right is a loop, it repeats playing D, A, Bm, F#m, G, D, G, A
Trivia: Tabs from the Internet, I modified the start A chord and added right hand annotation
Trivia: The flower is home grown, we ate the avocados and used the avocado stones as seeds
