He's gorgeous, Panzer. Nice catch. (Obviously a joke because of what you felt the need to put in parantheses)

I think Budd and I were havin a convo about this vid awhile back. If you play guitar and have all the techniques down and an understanding of the music and techniques then this song actually isn't as hard as it seems. If the kid had made it up then yes, this would be simply amazing for someone that young, but if you have the tab or the notation and you know how to read it and play a guitar (well enough to hit the right chords and notes in time) then you can learn this. Most of the awe of that song is intimidation, I know when I first heard it I was like "wow" but when you actually look at the tab for it and you break it down into sections to learn, it isn't as bad/hard as it seems. Just split it into sections, learn them to a T, then put them all together.

That video has been out a while and is one of many takeoffs of Jerry C's arrangement of Pacelbel's Canon. Of all the copycats, the one you posted is the best.

Here is the original (http://drunkenpuppies.com/2006/03/06/amazing-guitar-pachelbels-canon-in-d/) in case you haven't seen it

It isn't that hard period.

I know of at least 10 guys personally who play and say the same thing. Impressive for the kid's age, yes...but nothing that any seasoned guitarist couldn't do in his sleep.

I beg to differ, Trans-Siberian Orchestra does an amazing version of this song.

Chris Cafferty & Alex Skolnick on guitar. Not overdone, tasteful yet powerful...and some amazing vocals by an icredible looking babe! :wink:

It's thinking like that that would prevent you form learning the song, lol. If you've been playing acoustic for 10 years and never got into electric then it might be difficult, unless you learned hammer-ons and pull-offs and tapping on acoustic, in which case that song would be extremely easy, since acoustic is harder to play (in terms of the pressure needed to press the strings). That's BASICALLY all the song is, with some alternate picking and power chords (which are the easiest things in the world to play) seperated by a few 2 and 3 note runs. Seriously, just find the tab for it and look at it, it isn't as hard as you think. A great program is Guitar Pro. You can download tabs for it and create tabs in it, and it not only shows the tab but the notation too. You can eaither write it as notation and the tab automaticall shows up, or vice versa. That's what I used to learn the song since tabs just show you the fingering, they don't show you the duration of the notes. With Guitar Pro it had the tab with the notation right under it, so I had the easy way to read the fingering (the tab part) with the type of notes (whole, half, quarter, etc etc) displayed right with it with the notation part.

The arrangement was original enough for dozens of people (including Trans-Siberian Orchestra) to use the arrangment and the link you provided is comparing apples to oranges, brother. Jerry C did it first and solo in his room, single camera, no special effects or prep. :up:

I don't want to come across as arrogant, but I think both vids have no heart. If you have listened to Yngwie Malmsteen or Paul Gilbert, you would say the same. I just didn't get the feeling that these guys were playing with much emotion. To me, the worst thing you could do as a musician is come across mechanical. The second vid has some emotion, but I wasn't too impressed with either.

What year did Jerry C do his? I'm curious to see if he really was the first.

He was the first who did the arrangement and it is widely acknowledgedl, at least if you believe any (all that I've found) of the YouTube and Google video copycats that cite Jerry C as the arranger for the rock guitar solo.

Here is a site (http://www.jerryc.co.uk/) of interest and JerryC's official site (http://jerryc.tw)

For me...I don't know what good rock is but I know it when I see it (to paraphrase a Supreme Court Justice when asked to define "pornography". You sir Pagan are the expert and I concede that I may be wrong.

Bro I am far from an expert! I'm trying to find out who did it first also!
