He's right. It was voted hardest guitar song of the century and all centuries before.

Why don't you try it and if you can't play it than just stop and try it again in a month or two? It's not going to hurt if you try and fail. Plus, whats hard for some is cake for others.

Instead of wasting your time here and asking how hard the song is, download the GP tab and start learning it!

Same. The rest of the song isnt horribly hard at all TBH

Honestly, it's hard, but not as hard as everyone says. It's by no means the hardest song ever.

If you do learn it, just please don't make a youtube video of yourself playing it.



Yes, please do so we can point out all your little flaws within the song.

its not THE hardest but the leads are fairly hard.the rhythms are easy as hell. the only paty i cant play is the sweeps cause i cant sweep that fast yet.i learned it a few months ago and now im trying to learn eruption because only 3 people at my school can play it and eruptions is harder then canon rock imo.

Me too! I can't sweep even if my life depended on it.

Imo, its not that hard. At least until the sweep for me.

It is really fun to learn and play once you learn the song. And not too hard. The only thing that is hard at first is the massive sweep passage after the first verse, but hey I don't even recall that "pause" even being in the original composition, I think the original composition finishes the first verse then jump directly in the the chorus leading me to believe that he pauses the music to play it; so skipping it really is no big deal. The hardest part by far though is the sweeping solo after the interlude, but you have to realize the entire song except for the intro and chorus is improvisation basically, so you don't really even HAVE to play that sweeping part, you can just make some random stuff up, even if it isn't that great, if you make the other parts good, people won't care. To me it is the chorus that really shines most about that song.
#25
i'll give a 8/10. and maybe a 9/10 if u count the sweep, the song just happens to have a ALOT of notes, and they are not repeated over and over(ok maybe some parts) took me around 2 full week to learn everything up to the sweep, thn took me a whole month to master the sweep, so far im experiencing other songs like metallica, and bon jovi and van halen, if you think canon is hard try angelina. or neon, these songs i'll give a 10/10 on difficulty lvl. thn again i only been playing under a year..so i dont know if if im experienced yet
#26
heres a tip, learn it section by section. and chain them together lateron once u can play though each fluently
#28
If you learn Canon Rock and post it on Youtube, you should get "douchebag" branded onto your forehead with a hot iron.
#29
It depends, some parts are har dsome parts are easy...to others the same parts that are easy for some are the hard parts. I personally can't sweep. Never cared to learn, still don't care to, so I guess I won't be finishing learning the song...
I can play up to the sweeping part though, and the main riff, that sounds christmasy.

A lot to remember? Try learning the Freebird solo note for note and come tell me that. Im not entirely sure it even ends...

All non guitarists will think your sick sh!t and not even notice that the sweep isn't there.

Most guitarists will respect you for learning most of it and not putting it on Youtube like a douchebag.

The sweep sounds dumb anyway, its just guitar wankery. Learn the meat.

How hard do you want it to be?
It is a composition that allows you to be as creative as you want to be with it.

Quote by John W
why do people even like it? I think it sucks hard.


I agree. And it's not the least little bit hard. If you suck at sweeping, then you might have some problem with the sweep-lick, even if it is a simple one.

#35
I was able to sight read it and play, so it can't be that hard.

Although if you haven't been playing that long then it might be a bit tricky.

I find it sooo annoying and gay...

I'm not even gonna bother thinking about learning it

I sincerely doubt you have been playing for under a year and learnt Canon Rock in a month. Most people I know who have been playing for under a year still have trouble with open chord changes. I have been playing for 3 years and I still have a bit of trouble with the sweeping...
#39
No it's not hard. It looks difficult though.

I've been on the JerryC for a long time now and this thread keep popping up.

Just try and learn it. Within a month you will have it prime. Hopefully.
Sweet.
