I think canon is a little over rated, its 6 minutes of basically replaying the same part. My band did a 2 and a half minute cover of it, i think its a little less boring. (although the performance was a little sloppy. )

I'm playing lead.


No offence but that was kinda painful
#11
This has to be the most dull, boring guitar piece I know of. Hard to play, maybe, but still extremely dull.

I really can't bring myself to listen to all of them. I'm just gonna say Funtwo, if only because of the little blues run he puts on the end.

Ultimate Canon Rock, but since it's not in the poll, FunTwo interpretation is pretty smooth.

I really don't think its neccisary for all of you to posting saying how you hate the song.... The point is to see who the majority of you thought did the best version.
#22
I love asian guy lol. he's plays it very well. Matt Rach has the WORST version.

Woah guys, this is actually the first post relevant to the thread in a LOOONG time. I applaud you Scotdizzle.


I found the damn sig thing!

I like the original better. Jerry C composed the guitar part, Pachelbel composed original Canon in D, I gotta say, Jerry C did it the best because his was the original. He modernized classical music and made classical+metal cool, that's what inspired all those guys to cover it.
Hey look, a stoner/doom album.

Wrong.....Johann Pachelbel did.

In a way.

Canon Rock is almost indetical to the original so theres hardlno arranging done to be honest. I think the original is better but only because it nice to relax to.

But to be honest copared to alot of classical pieces Canon in D is still very boring. it doesn't comapre at all to things like Toccatta and Fugue by Bach or Summer (Presto) by Vivaldi


...and alot more...
Flap it and enjoy yourself...
