Watch the Cannon in D Playalong online guitar lesson by Marcy Marxer from Ukulele for Guitar Players

Pachelbel’s Cannon in D Play-along using the calypso strum. Yes, calypso strumming may not have been the intention of the composers in the pre-1700 versions of this progression but it helps bring us closer to the modern pop feel. The key of D is thought of as being the original key, however. It isn’t every day that ukulele players can claim to be High Brow so cop some attitude quick.

We’ll play the progression 8 times. Remember to use the looping software on the TrueFire site.
