Pachelbel's Canon


Anonymous Vinny said...

John, I remember seeing Rob perform this at Notre Dame and I found, after some further goofing around with my guitar, that this same chord sequence is also used in:

Save Tonight - Eagle Eye Cherry

Don't Think Twice - Bob Dylan

Oh Darling - The Beatles

Smile A Little Smile For Me - The Flying Machine

Take Me Home, Country Roads - John Denver

Down Under - Men at Work/Colin Hay

Strawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles

It's actually a variation of I iv IV V - a common progression in 50s songs like "Earth Angel" in Back to the Future. Cool eh?
