Oh Dear Lord This Kid ROCKS

Many thanks to Riehl World View for this find.

You have never heard the Canon in D played this way, I guarantee!

The kid is korean and he’s doing an rock-and-roll arrangement arrangement by a Taiwanese kid named Jerry C. Jerry’s original version is smooother and more fluid, but The Beast thinks the Korean kid just rocks harder, even though he makes a few mistakes. For some reason the Canon has become fabulously popular in Asia. Perhaps there is anime or soap opera circulating on TV there that uses it as a theme song.

    That was EXCELLENT! I’m envious…the only instrument I can play is an air-guitar.

    The Hairy Beast LOVES the Canon in D. This version made all his hair stand up on end.

    It’s grand is it not, Mary?

    Somebody must have linked to it in the past few minutes because all of a sudden The Beast has scores of people viewing it.

    A pingback sure would be nice. 🙂

    Ah … the ol’ Taco Bell Cannon! No, really, Johann Pachelbel would be enormously pleased to hear this, I believe!

    As for me, all I can say is WOW that was inspiring!!! I’m a classically-trained non-musician who’s into jazz and classical but never been impressed much with rock ‘n roll … but THIS IS MARVELOUS!!! Thanks for posting it! By the way, found it linked on Free Republic.

    Thanks John. Lotta views to that post, very mixed reviews though. Lotta Freepers seem to think combining rock and classic is a sin.
