Just simply - what techniques you need to know to play cannon rock? I'm thinking to try but I want to get better first on the main techniques that are needed on cannon rock so what are those techniques?
#2
All of them... nice vibrato, fast clean alternate picking, clean sweeping, good rhythm, string skipping I think, possibly some tapping but I'm not sure on that one either.
#3
yeah, pretty much everything

No offence or anything, but if you have to ask you may not be ready for it. It's a pretty advanced piece, you need to be very competent in many guitar techniques. Working towards it as a long term goal is great, just don't try it before you're ready or you could end up wasting your time and getting frustrated.
Good luck anyhow.

This. You might wanna take a look at Neil Zaza's It's all right. It's covered by Funtwo and isn't as complex as CR.
G(g)od was like: "Make you an ark of gopher wood; rooms shall you make in the ark, and shall pitch it within and without with pitch."

And i was like: "What's gopher wood?"

Does Cannon rock mean that you use the classical Cannon, but apply to rock/metal music??
you need two guitars or other instruments to play the counterpoint part

@Zaphod_Beeblebr: jani92jani is obviously trolling. Don't feed the trolls

Cannon Rock is not THAT advanced. Different guitarists made different covers and some are pretty much made to show off there skills. Watch a few and if you think you can't play them, find more simple ones are combine them or make your own.

Doesn't canon in musical context refer to the structure of the piece?

TS yeah you pretty much need all the techniques. Really fun to play though go for it!

Yep, its to do with variations on a repeated chord progressions IIRC, like a chaconne.

Or in Canon in D's context, it's to do with someone playing a sick joke on cellists.
