         Title : Pachelbels Canon
        Artist : Trace Bundy
         Album : Adapt
Transcribed by : Aidor
================================================================================

This is my first real attempt at tablature, but this is such a cool song & everyone
to play it so I had to
attempt it. I've learnt this from the album version, only checking the youtube video to
sure i was in the right place now & again. In the video of him playing this live, its a
bit different here & there, but overall its the same. There are 1 or 2 small bits that i
i play differently, like using different fingers for a particular note for example,
i find my way easier and 99% of this is accurate. Another important thing to point out
that the tab isnt exactly spaced as it should be played, they're just spaced so that its
you should know how the song supposed to sound and shouldn't need me to space everything
right musically. Also this song has LOTS of hammer-ons & pull-offs, and
no way in hell i was going to write out all the h's & p's in the tab. Again, if you're
on learning this, you should know how its meant to sound & therefore you shouldn't need
to write them.

For reference:

Hey good work here. Do you have the Power Tab Program? It's a free download and makes learning and typing up tabs so
much easier for everyone...yourself included. Anyway just to let you know the DADGAD tuning is really called Dsus4
tuning as the open strings make a Dsus4 chord D=Root Note G = the 4th and A = the 5th. Just in case you were wondering.
I want to get tabs for all of his songs, I think you can buy them off of his website. Did you learn this all from ear
and by watching his vid? Cause that would be amazing. I can play all sorts of music, but most of the time the music I
like to play (like this song for example) is too intricate for my ear. Nice job!
