About this tab version
This tab not only has the intro and buildup, but also the main hook that is so unique to Canon, which I have not been able to find elsewhere. So I decided to figure it out myself. I also introduced a few tonal changes, permitting the song to lower and heighten in pitch as much as possible for dynamic effect. Hope you enjoy and all feedback is appreciated. Feel free to work on the tab as well if you feel something is incorrect or missing. Thank you. Was this info helpful? Yes No
[Intro]
Gently fingerpick one string at a time, starting with the root.
The composition follows this chord progression:
D(1), A(5), Bm(6-), F#(3), G(4), D(1), G(4), A(5).

     D    A    Bm    F#      G     D     G   A
e|----2---------------------------2------3---0-|
B|---3-----2----3----------------3------0---2--|
G|--2-----2----4----3------0----2-----0----2---|
D|-0-----2----4----4------0----0---------------|
A|------0----2----4------2---------------0-----|
E|---------------2------3----------3-----------| (Repeat two times.)
   D   A   Bm   F#     G     D    G     A

 Now strum or pick the chord and then follow the same fingerpicking pattern as above but 
without the root.
   D        A       Bm        F#       G        D       G       A
e|-2----2---0--------2--------2--------3--------2----2--3----3--0----0-|
B|-3---3----2----2---3----3---2--------0--------3---3---0---0---2---2--|
G|-2--2-----2---2----4---4----3----3---0----0---2--2----0--0----2--2---|
D|-0--------2--2-----4--4-----4---4----0---0----0-------0-------2------|
A|----------0--------2--------4--4-----2--2-------------2-------0------|
E|----------------------------2--------3----------------3--------------| (Repeat two times.)

   D        A       Bm        F#       G        D       G       A
2. Buildup. Play moderately slow in the beginning and slowly speed up giving the music 
its time.
Remeber that it is a buildup of the music. Use the amount of dashes between the notes as 
a guide.

                             Accelerando
e|----------2-5---2----2---5-2-5-7-3-2-0-3-2-0-------------|
B|-3-2-3-2-3---------3------------------------3-2-0-2--2-5-|
G|-------------------------------------------------0----0--|
D|---------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------|

3. Climax. Play moderately fast but do not lose the balance and rythm of the music.
 This section closely follows the A Major Scale.
