Rob Paravonian's Pachelbel Rant

The patterns in music are, to quote Mr. Spock, fascinating. I love hearing how simple patterns like chord progressions and rhythms can be applied so diversely and with such different effect. My fascination was once again tweaked when I came across this YouTube video in a blog post (I wish I could find again to give credit to). Bonus, it's also funny as hell!

The accursed song mentioned in the video, Pachelbel's Canon, is one I had never know the name of. I've spend the better part of the last hour exploring the song variations on YouTube. Curse you Related Videos block! My favorite variation is this rock guitar version:

The video page on Paravonian's website is worth a look, too.

I love Pachelbel's Canon. If
