Pachelbel Canon in D Lessons

About the Pachelbel Canon in D Lessons series


Something happened in 2005, when Jeong-Hyun Lim (known as "Funtwo") recorded a cover version of JerryC's "Canon Rock". Not only did the arrangement gather massive media attention - but more importantly it planted a seed in the hearts of aspiring guitarists all over the world.

Funtwo proved that if you have a guitar and an Internet connection - you can do it. At GMC - we have always known that anyone can do it.

However - not everyone can find the motivation, self confidence and inspiration to practice every day, every week.

We hope these lessons inspire you. :)
