Canon in D Major

Composer Players Instrument Notation Period
Pachelbel, Johann (1653-1706) duet guitar standard Baroque

There have been a couple requests for a solo version of the famous Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel. Unfortunately, this cannot be transcribed for solo guitar without seriously harming the basic structure of the music. However, it is possible as a duet. You will see that the music includes no fingerings, although I have adjusted the distribution of the voices so that both parts are quite playable and, I think you will find, quite enjoyable. Think of this music not as a fully developed performance score, but as an exercise in sight-reading.
