Pachelbel’s Canon is the name commonly given to a canon by the German Baroque composer Johann Pachelbel in his Canon and Gigue for 3 violins and basso continuo (German: Kanon und Gigue für 3 Violinen mit Generalbaß) (PWC 37, T. 337, PC 358), sometimes referred to as Canon and Gigue in D or simply Canon in D. Neither the date nor the circumstances of its composition are known, and the oldest surviving manuscript copy of the piece dates from the 19th century.

Notable guitarists that have covered this piece include Jerry C and FunTwo (albeit theirs were rock versions)

My classical guitar lessons and acoustic guitar lessons will help you to learn to play the guitar. I cover a wide range of guitar music and each of my guitar lessons comes complete with matching guitar tabs and guitar sheet music. These online guitar tutorials are a one-stop shop giving you an effective means of learning beautiful guitar music without needing a teacher in your local area.

You don’t need to be able to read tab or sheet music to play any of the songs in these guitar lessons but they can be a powerful tool that can assist you to become a better and more rounded guitarist. All guitar tabs for my lessons are free and can be downloaded easily from our website or you can leave a comment with your email address, like and subscribe to my channel and we will happily send out any tabs that you request. For a very small fee you can also purchase the guitar sheet music that contains standard music notation with guitar tabs underneath, suggested left hand fingerings, and performance indications.

I hold a Licentiate in Performance Classical Guitar with Distinction from the Trinity College of London and I love arranging music for guitar. I have well over 20 years of teaching experience at many schools in New Zealand and also at one school in Dubai, and privately in Bahrain. I have taught people from all ages and skill levels and continue to do so via YouTube.

My guitars and effects are provided by Takamine, Ibanez, Boss, and Fractal Audio.
