Canon in D Major

Lyrics & Chords

This is an interpretation of a famous western classical song titled Canon in D Major. The song was originally composed by Johaan Pachelbel and the chord structure is extremely popular (features in songs by several mainstream bands). The guitar version was popularized by the youtube version of a Korean guitarist (who goes by the name funtwo). This arrangement was originally created by Jerry C, a taiwanese guitarist and musician.

am stunned too Man….and intimidated too……may be if I live 100 years more I will be able to play like this :)I suspect this is inspired by the works of John Williams…not too sure though

hey tailgunner !!!
great stuffffff
loved it !!
any light on your equipment and recording
the tone sounded a lot like Satch
very clean very nice….i noticed a slight buzz on the 12th fret of the B string….wonder if you did hit that point but there was a slight buzz….i suffer that same problem and was wondering if u know what causes it !!

loved it
very nice very honest and beautiful tone…
sounded like a fender/ibanez…could be wrong
any light on ur equipment / recording process / gadgets would be helfpul

@ Neil: thanks for visiting and commenting….i agree with the mixing….i’m not very good at it but will strive to do better….

@ Bodhi: thanks dude….

@ Nandita: danksssssss

@ Priya: thanks for your kind words….would be happy to take suggestions….though I’m not sure if I can do justice to them…

@ Sudeip: thanks dude….appreciate it…on my recording and equipment…

For this song:

Guitar: Silvertone ($70 cheap fender copy)….my first electric guitar :-)

Processor: Korg AX 3000 G….I just programmed a basic patch….several people suggested that it sounded very satch like (which sure is a mega compliment)….the patch has some compression, metal distortion simulator with the gain turned to around 70 percent and digital delay (if i remember correct i set it to abt 450ms)….thats abt it…

Recording: I use cool edit pro (yes i know it is very basic)….as for the sounds on this the richness is because of several layers….for instance, the chord pattern riff is basically 4 layers one on top of the other…this gives the depth to the sound….the thing is I’m pretty bad at mixing….so it probably will sound better if mixed with better skill….

(PS: I’m gonna miss the tones and my guitars….i sold them all and will be starting afresh….plan to get myself an Ibanez with the FR bridge….any recommendations????)….

There is technique and there is sheer emoting power.

Very few guitar players can combine the two. You are one of them, mate. Tough not to be jealous of a player of your calibre.

Really enjoyed this one.

Staight into my F-Box.

Excellent job Anup… Agree with Sudeip about the Satch like tone… In terms of improvement, i guess the timing could be better at spots… but very minor. Kudos man!!
