What skill level would you guys say this version of canon is?

I've been trying to learn it for my school's variety show, but im getting a little frustrated. It starts out easy, but gets hard once the song gets started. I can play through it slowly, but some of the fingerings throw me off and cause short pauses.

Heres the powertab/sheet music... (I've been sight reading for 2 years, so I know what the note values equal)

Do you guys know of any other versions? I'd like to look around that way if I can't get it down in time I could mix and match parts.

Well, for starters, there is no "skill level" in music; this isn't Call of Duty.

Second of all, we cannot answer your question without two very important pieces of information:
1. When's the show?
2. How long have you been playing

Cause there music is heavy.

I've been playing for 2 1/2 years with an instructor. Most of it's been reading music though. Tabs I taught myself. The show is in mid april. Try-outs are in March, but you only need about a minute of what youre gonna play. I already have most of the first page, so I could easily make it in. Either way, even if you guys dont think I could get it memorized by then, I'd still like to learn it because I love the sound of the song.

This is definitely a piece worth learning. Simply put, it's just variations on D A Bm F#m G D G A.

I learned it mostly by playing it over and over on CD until I had it memorized how it's supposed to sound, and playing it with sheet music every chance I could get, a bunch of years back.

I noticed the chord progression, but do you think I should go note by net on the sheet music I linked? Or should I just get the basic chords and improv a solo over top of it?
