MusTech.Net Comment:

This video is from an old post on MusTech.net listed over two years ago. The old-series is being re-integrated into the newer “Amazing YouTube Video Series” at MusTech.net.

“When a student first sent this to me, I laughed like crazy.  Here is a fellow (classically trained) playing the guitar and ranting about why he hates Pachelbel’s Canon in D.  He provides a great presentation of other genre tunes that have “stolen” the chords and ends up in a tirade of emotional ranting at the end-well scripted!.
