I once blogged about JerryC’s rendition of Johann Pachelbel’s Canon in D which is one of my favorite classical piano pieces even before JerryC made Canon Rock popular which I posted in my blog last February 19, 2006.
Today, there are like hundreds of people doing their own style of JerryC’s arrangement. Some just playing the exact same thing, some not that quite proficient, and others somewhat at the same level. Others even with their practice errors, all posting them on video sites. I just decided to look at some and I found some that had their own unique twist to it.
Original arrangement of the classical music Canon in D played by JerryC himself.
By Funtwo, nothing different in how he played it, but he was one of the early people who posted his version so many people found out about it that kind of made him famous in his country, Korea.

Acoustic guitar versions: Have a hard time with Canon in D? So make it Canon in C! *LOL*
Better acoustic guitar version of Canon in D
So far the best acoustic guitar version of Canon in D I have seen by Trace Bundy
I don’t know how that tapping will sound without that microphone. Sound good but I think that should sound a little weaker without the mic.
Best non-modified Canon in D on the acoustic guitar I have seen
Bass guitar in the dark playing Canon in D
More skilled bass guitar player with his version of Canon in D
Not a Canon Rock Version, but playing the actual Canon in D, as a duet on the keyboards and guitar.
Canon Rock duet with a saxophone.
When the sax plays lead, reminds me of Walt Disney cartoons, like it is a horn of a car or something like that. *LOL*
Also not Canon Rock. Just plain Canon in D. By a group of acoustic guitar players. I found it boring.
Not just any ordinary Canon Rock copy cat. He has his own thing going on, which I think compliment JerryC’s version pretty well.
A funny comment on this video was talking about Asians. Because it is like every Asian guitar player seems to know Canon in D *LOL*
One thought on “Pachelbel’s Canon in D on Electric Guitar to the nth power!”
You missed this one:
Ok, it’s much newer than your article, but I think it’s the best version.
