Arrangement: Canon in D Fingerstyle Tabs
“Canon in D” by Johann Pachelbel is one of the most recognized classical music of all time that has been heard in different arrangements and interpreted by many musicians in different genre. Also, the song has been heard on different occasions specially intimate functions like weddings.

This fingerstyle guitar arrangement is still in the key of D Major without dropping the 6th E String to D. My reason is to simplify the arrangement and help those new guitar players to start playing the Canon in simplified form while maintaining the original key. There is an option to make the song simpler by transposing the entire piece into the key of C Major. But I still wanted to play “Canon” in the original key as it give me the feeling and enthusiasm to play.

For the new guitar players, start playing this song slowly. I know that you may have hard time on some bars of this arrangement like the bars 23 and 24. Which will require you to stretch your fingers from 3rd Fret to 7th Fret. Though it may be a challenge, but just continue practicing and eventually you will find your guitar skills in different position.
