Awesome tab, This tab is much easier to read then the guitar pro version if you only read tablature. Thanks for the great tab, printing now =) I know a couple people who heard this song and instantly went out and bought a guitar, good to see they have the tab for it now lol

For those of you who want the actual Backtrack for the song, JerryC has it up on his website... I think.......

Great tab by the way.

wow, i learned this song in about 3 days, frakin awesome. only hard part is the contineus sweeping parts. thats the only thing i must learn. but what a mezmorizing song huh?
April 23 2006, 12:02 am by -.-'''' |
Hey JerryC.. THIS IS AWSOME SONG, it must have taken like weeks to make the song. anyway i just want to say that the tabs is kinda hard to read even my friend, can u like make it more easire to read? itz not really bad but like make it easier to read the tab coz i really wanna play it as well coz it sounds sooo cool.
April 27 2006, 05:03 pm by Bossman123 |
What a song, id never heard it before i saw this tab. If u liked it Yngwie does a Kick ass version of the same song. Great tab as well by the way!!
+6   May 2 2006, 01:23 pm by BC_Warlock |
Dude, all he done was take the gutar pro version, but still...Awsome. What a song, and to top it off, im playing it at a weding in 1 week so wish me luck.
May 2 2006, 08:59 pm by soad player |
you rules Jerryc i saw this song played by you n im think i should play that yeah
+1   May 15 2006, 07:59 pm by chase09 |
I hope you guys all know that JerryC did NOT write this song. All he did was arrange it so that it was for electric guitar. The composer Johann Pachelbel wrote it.
+1   May 16 2006, 08:06 pm by element99 |
this is amazing, its all preety easy except the sweeps, thanks a million for tabbing it out, if u can email me some tips on those sweeps i would appreciate it

May 28 2006, 08:00 pm by Jaw Knee |
Dude, you ****ing own. I needed a free tab for this so my teacher could show me how to play it. I'm forever in your debt.

"I hope you guys all know that JerryC did NOT write this song. All he did was arrange it so that it was for electric guitar. The composer Johann Pachelbel wrote it."

this dude has no clue what he's talking about. Listen to the original version. JerryC wrote most of this song, he took parts of the original, but not the whole thing.
June 3 2006, 11:35 pm by MHSDC |
I would love to know what kinda effects he's using...anyone know?
June 5 2006, 07:44 am by dud-fatty |
scalemaster is right but jerryc rearranged it on guitar pro (or similar program) and if u listen 2 the coke advert for the world cup pachelbel's version is on there,

hey, this is great.. but can you put this on powertab.. pls..!!
June 9 2006, 02:54 am by hazerrazer |
hey, thanks to the guy who made it into tablature, that's awesome. but what does mean? and how do u play it?
June 9 2006, 11:38 pm by bboyswrlz |
how do u play an accentuded note? how do u play a tied note? sorry i feel mad newb
June 21 2006, 05:28 pm by BlueZephyr |
The way I play an accent note is I make it louder and more noticeable than the other the notes. The way I see it is that the other notes are background.. the accented note is more important.

A tied note is the same note from a previous measure that is held for an x amount of time into the next measure.

Hope that makes some sense.

Great tab, btw.
July 7 2006, 11:10 pm by habeeb420 |
this tab is awesome. i remember when i first saw the video of jerryc playing, i instantly tried to learn it by watchin, then i looked for tabs. then there wasnt any good tabs for it. but this one rocks! sounds great. goodjob!
July 11 2006, 08:20 pm by dpunkplayer182 |
yea this song rocks im learning it right now its kinda hard to remember all the parts but not that hard to far...i think it gets harder after the parts that i know...oh well great tab jerryc and great song...
July 15 2006, 04:59 am by chubbychunks |
Wow, that long list at the end really scares me....I don't understand most of it....
July 29 2006, 09:55 am by rager619 |
Oh..Wow! I got it! After 2 weeks of practice...I finally perfected it! It was so hard memorizing all those riffs, but it was sure worth it that's because i'm always at the center of attention whenever i play this song w/ my electric! Tnx so much dude! now i'm popular but not only to 1 school, but 3 schools!!! It was sure worth my time trying to perfect it! Tnx man!
August 1 2006, 11:18 pm by jose763 |
any tips on the sweeping parts
August 9 2006, 04:11 pm by sliksilver |
very nice song, right now im learning how to play the original song from guitar pro but once im done with the plain stuff im goin right to this solo version.

August 18 2006, 08:14 pm by jose763 |
first off this is a great tab and it doesnt need anyhing. its perfect but i found that this is was an easier way,for me, to play one of the sweeping parts. its the same notes just on a different part of the fret board. alsoi think its how funtwo plays it.

August 18 2006, 08:15 pm by jose763 |
the T (tapping)is supposed to go on top of the 17

September 24 2006, 03:18 pm by frankthetank19 |
Well I think its not perfect exactly but still good, there is some sweeping missing after the main rythms and some scale are not correct.

October 17 2006, 03:57 pm by JohnR242 |
Really awesome JerryC. Your playing is super!! Thanks for this tab, it really is helping a lot of people enjoy the gift of music.
For those that feel it is too hard and that they can't play it I say PRACTICE! take it small chunks at a time (Say 2 to 4 bars at a time) and go slowly till you get the notes into your head and fingers. More importantly; be accurate not sloppy with the notes, try to learn it right the first time and you'll have it made. Yes, it will take some time, but the reward at the end is a fantastic piece of music that you will be able to play and people will say WOW!! MAN!! YOUR AWESOME!!

OH! by the way, if you want the backing track go to this link and scroll to the bottom of the page, right click on the backing track icon and save target as.

Lolz... is it possible to play this on an acoustic guitar?
-.-' Got no electric guitar [hoping to get one soon]...

6th month of playing guitar; I wonder how long it would take me to learn this... and btw, how do you "sweep"? [Sorry, I'm noob, self-taught, dunno that much people who play guitar]
November 28 2006, 04:10 pm by BC_Warlock |
Theres plenty of sweep exercises on the internet Just look :)

January 24 2007, 09:54 am by mutax2003 |
Hi Brendan,

Great tab, I like it, except it is hard for me to play the higher notes on my acoustic guitar, which has no cutoff. I wonder if you can rewrite the tab for acoustic, with the highest notes going to 14 th Fret. Thanks.
January 27 2007, 07:42 pm by spencer Cr |
Dude! this is awsome who cares that you tok it off of guitar pro it is still sweet and all of us with out guitar pro solute you

omg I hate thóse people who always say 'I got a guitar last week , and suddenly I learned Canon Rock within 3 days!I play it perfect , I looked at the tab and it is so easy'...yes and I play it with one hand when I sleep
March 6 2007, 08:31 am by guitar-pete |
I can play the start of it with the vibratos. I'm gonna get practicing this daily piece by piece/bar by bar. Might take a while but something mega to play in karaoke or a wedding.

It was originally made as a classical sing with 3 or 4 instruments by Johann Pachelbell and then JerryC tabbed it out which took him 2 weeks and then funtwo played it and became an internet phenomenon. Thanx for tabbing it btw.
March 8 2007, 03:26 pm by BC_Warlock |
Actually friendly fire...I can play alot of this song with 1 hand :P Dampening the other strings though...But its possible. But not when i sleep :)
March 8 2007, 03:27 pm by BC_Warlock |
Also, for Funtwos version of this song, check out VErsion 6 on guitar pro.
March 11 2007, 04:42 pm by i<3myteli |
f*** funtwo, he makes a lot of mistakes while he's playing anyway, he's good, but jerryc is the real talent, and f*** youtube for screwin it up, but this tabs perfect so far but i can never get the sweeps good at the end :(
March 23 2007, 09:26 am by SPC |
Fucking Awesome!
March 23 2007, 11:22 pm by brent_nadurata |
**** jerryc very awesome!! haha
March 28 2007, 10:25 pm by Beck-Ryu$uk3 |
it's too simple. when i hear the mp3 i think it's too hard. but after i saw the video and the tab, i can play it. for jeffry : can u make another classical rock music?? i hope u can make it.
April 1 2007, 03:27 pm by ganondorf36 |

what dos thi one means..?=?15 14 15 14 15 14 15 14 im confused
April 10 2007, 01:18 am by turnfoot |
pachelbell was a genius & jerryc could never live up to him as far as composers go. but he sure gave "canon" the respect that it should have deserved (even from guitarists). anyways, that was one hell of a song!
April 12 2007, 02:51 pm by petrucci07 |
guitar world have tabbed it.better than yours, but good job dude, 5 strs!
April 12 2007, 07:29 pm by Rock*Star |
ok, that ganandorf36 guy is an idiot. WATCH THE VIDEO

and i'm not actually sure if this is jerryC's version, or FunTwo's version tabbed wrong (FunTwo taps way more than this shows, and the only part in this tab where it shows tapping isnt even tapping, it's just hammering on/off quickly. THERE'S A DIFFERANCE!)
April 13 2007, 04:37 pm by Anderson4292 |
yup... ace tab, but isn't it a breach of copright when you say "Tabbed by " when you obvioulsy didn't tab it.

I love this song, and can play up until the solid bit right at the end...just hearing it makes me cry myself to sleep at night.

How long did it take you guys here to learn the whole song? Write to me, I want to learn it over the summer but I think i'm going to quit after a while.....
April 25 2007, 09:08 am by Chris-13 |
I have played for about 5-6 months and I'm at 03:40 now.Gee... the sweeping is pretty hard.

June 9 2007, 07:52 am by BC_Warlock |
If anybody likes Funtwo's version then check out Version 6 in Guitar pro (I will put it in normal tab soon).

By me. 100% accurate.
June 10 2007, 04:01 pm by shellshock1911 |
what does this mean 6?
June 17 2007, 07:42 pm by ShreddinBXC |
this song is SWEET

personally i think this one is the best... way better than funtwo

June 18 2007, 10:11 am by Pr0phecy_X |
Hehe.... It's funny, I never even heard of Canon Rock up till three day's ago and now ive become completely and totally obsessed with it. Regardless of who came up with the original idea of arranging and preforming it on guitar it is just a ****in masterpeice of music. So I have to say, JerryC if your ever in Canada, i'll buy you a beer :) good job.

6 means fret the six fret on wichever string specified....

And btw, this tab is 100% accurate do not post misleading information about good tab's so other's read it and go learn something that is actually wrong. Anyways, im in the midst of getting through this so later :)

June 19 2007, 05:15 pm by pjm012345 |
does any one know what instrument this was originally arranged on if it wasnt guitar ?because jerryc didnt compose it did he
June 24 2007, 03:15 pm by goducks11 |
hey pjm012345 it was originally played by like an orchestra, but idont know the composer. Its a really old song.

Anyway good tab its perfect.
June 26 2007, 06:31 am by kumagpoko |
the original is was did in a piano by pachelbel....
June 30 2007, 11:24 pm by mohawkkidJohn |
it is easier to play the 1st line of the sweep picking part like this

instead of playin the 7th fret on the 5th string play the 12th fret on the 6th sting.
July 8 2007, 04:45 pm by guitar-pete |
oopsie, I lied - I didn't continue playing it. I learnt the vibrato(e)s but anyne can play that bit, it's sooooo easy. Oh God! I gotta learn to sweep now and cos I'm smart I know there's lessons all over the internet ^_^

Time to do a bit of printing me thinks.

and BTW 4.7gb JerryC never wrote the song, he just rearranged it a little and made it better than the orchestral one.

And forthe record I prefer Funtwo's version, it has a better sound.

August 23 2007, 02:18 am by nangsta |
i don't know how 130 something of you could've missed it, but the first 7 8 7 triplet is actually just one note. it's blatantly obvious if you listen to the song.

hey people. awesome tab. ive studied classical music for five years and played guitar for you, so this of for those of you wondering who wrote what. Johann Pachelbel wrote he pachabel canon - a canon is a progression of chords over a ground bass, basically the chords that are played throughout the piece and at the beginning. this was from the baroque era. he then wrote themes that go on top of it, the most famous one being in the coke advert, and this is played after the chords at the beginning, but thats all JerryC used when he wrote his version (canon rock), the rest was all written by JerryC. he originally posted on his website, and FunTwo covered it, which is how the whole canon rock got famous. thats pretty much it, the history of the canon! once again, great tab, thanks

Yea well I was planing to tab this song but then I tought about JerryC. He is famous because of this song but if everyone can play it, nothing makes him famous anymore. So I didn't put it on ultimate-guitar. The tab is all ready and it is almost as good as this one (And I mean, this one is pretty good) But this song is Jerry's property...

Sorry if you think I'm a shit but thats what I think...
November 14 2007, 09:18 pm by chili157 |
yeah look up guitar on youtube and he should be the first one hes wearin a blue shirt.

Bad ass dude seriously you
gotta watch him.

if you can play this song why not take it to the next level by learning mattrach's version "the new canon rock" i learned it and its so much more bad ass then this version and not much harder to learn once u learn this canon. so check out my tab "new canon rock" by mattrach i played it at a talent show and its been getting me chicks like crazy haha

He didn'y write it btw. Notice those Letterrings above the bars? And the extensive legend at the end? This is a guitar pro feature which allows you to convert gp5 material into ACSII (Tablature) in about three seconds... So really, he did nothing special to make this tab, and he is getting a shit load of credit for those 30 seconds it took him to convert the tab, then copy ad paste into the tab submission.
