Canon in C

Apparently this version of Pachelbel's Canon that I found
online was put together by Satch. It is definately the
best version of Canon for guitar that I've heard. It's
much more technical than any of the others. This is what I
came up with, although there is a lot missing. I have the
main structure of the song here, with a view parts left
out that I couldn't get. There may be a lot of bass notes missing
too. I'm not sure if this song uses 2 guitars for the whole thing,
or just for the last half of the song. Anyways, hopefully somebody
can use this tab and figure out the rest of the song.
Make sure to send it in to Ultimate Guitar.

Yes Pachelbel's Canon is in D, but it can be played in C as well. I don't know what album its on. There are so many different recordings on limewire, that its hard to keep track of who is playing it. But this is a fairly distinct version, and in my opinion, the best Canon adapted for guitar that I've ever heard. The only reason I think Satriani did it, is because some kid on youtube plays most of the song very terribly, but he says its Satriani
