Pachelbel’s Canon

Mr. Thursday has recently come across two different videos involving the most overplayed piece of classical music in history.  The first is a video of some anonymous young guitarist playing a heavily affected electric guitar along with a recorded version of the aforementioned Canon.  It’s a fun rendition, and though our player has some skill, Mr. Thursday plays a little geeter and can tell you there’s only one maneuver in there that requires any sort of proficiency, and there’s enough distortion on the guitar to mask most errors committed throughout the piece.   All this said, it’s still fun, and here it is.  

Far more pleasurable, in our opinion, is this following clip regarding, again, the Canon de Pachelbel.  It’s invading your life, and you haven’t even realized it.  Special dedication for this video goes out to all the other former cellists out there (yes, Mr. Thursday was once in the 4th grade string orchestra) who know the pain of this piece.

Now if only someone could do one of those about grammar…
