Canon in D

Finally, for once, let's talk about a Canon that is not a camera. I'm referring to the famous Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel. Or more specifically, the recent transmogrification of that classic piece into a rock guitar solo called Canon Rock by Taiwanese guitarist Jerry C. It has since been rehashed by numerous other incredibly talented guitarists. Their videos are all on YouTube. There's this particular guy by the name of Funtwo who has received over 20 million hits on his video! Well, thanks to Jon who has compiled some of the Canon videos, we can now view them on his blog. Be inspired.

It's amazing what two hands and ten fingers can do. Of course, all wired to a brain. Only God Almighty could have created and endowed His creatures with such skills.

charis: Thanks for the encouragement. Same to you and your darlings. Don't keep us waiting too long. :P

lina: If I practice hard enough, I think I can get the first 8 bars. Haha.

This would be really cool as a wedding processional. Just make sure the minister doesn't have a heart condition.

200 years from now, rock will be considered classical. Yea, right.
