    You have got to be kidding me. Why can`t you younger folks actually appreciate anything? Has video games dulled your already small minds into not understand that not only did all of those people play a cool song, but this guy spent the time and effort to showcase all 40 of them at one time. I for one enjoyed this video massively. But then again, I guess I expect to much from the younger generations.

    I hate Cannon in D. I don`t care who does it. It`s effing 7 chords over and over and over and over and over. I`ve played it in orchestras, on piano, on guitar. There is NOTHING you can do to make this song entertaining. The only people who like this song are the uncultured masses who have no talent and think that ANYONE playing music is AMAZING. Honestly, I can play this song in my sleep, with both hands tied behind my back, with two dicks in my face, and someone from behind.

    What is with all of you people who can`t appreciate music? It`s one thing to not like a song, but don`t bash it and say it sucks just because it`s not your favorite. It`s great that people are trying to modernize things to keep classical music still amazing. Canon in D is a great song, especially on Guitar, and these guys did great.

Yet many (not all) of you jerks still rant and ridicule this stuff. Anyways how can this be boring? It was a mix of a lot of players out there. IMO this was a very good video.

    I, personally, am not bashing the video itself or the musicians featured in it; I respect anyone who has the balls to share their talent with the world. However, I don`t have to like the song they chose (especially since it`s been one of my least favorite pieces of music ever since I learned it in piano over 10 years ago).

    Im glad you know me so well. It`s nice to know that I think that I`m amazing because I can play music. And I`m so glad you can play it, oh so well with, what appears to be the only possible thing left for you to play it with, your feet..or possibly your nose...that would be interesting to watch. If you can play it so well why don`t you entertain us with a rendition of it? I`m sure we would all be pleased to see it.

    I loved the clip and the talent and effort put into it, but I just can`t stand Pachelbel`s Canon! It`s boring and repetetive in the extreme. Thanks YouTube! In thousands of bedrooms, apartments and houses around the world that song is ruining parents` evenings and warping fragile adolescent minds with it`s insidious melody ;->

    I thought the people playing were all rather talented, and whoever took the time to piece it all together did well too. But the song...I used to adore this song, and every once in a while it`s not too bad...but after those years learning to play violin, I find that this song gets very annoying very quickly, especially for people that have to learn how to play it. And even more so for the cellists and their wonderful eight notes.

    you guys are all drating retarded...if that video showed anything it showed how unoriginal those no talent asshats are...they can`t even come up with there own classical piece because they are to stupid to transpose one themselves...proof that people who put poo like this up on youtube are nothing special and that anyone can play poo music if they are willing to suck that bad.

    Okay, this is true genius, it keeps the old qualities of the original, while magnifying the latent spirit of freedom found in Pachelbels (sp?) cannon.

    Those who are bored by this have only one valid excuse: They have seen it so many times, that it has been worn out to them... Other than that, you are just too lazy to appreciate it.It can be enjoyed from many points of views.

    hmm, youre right...you and your unlimited talents outshine all of us. and your taste in music is without a doubt superior to every person who has ever heard this song and enjoyed it. in fact, i am so proud to have gotten to read the words that you have typed.

    COME ON!!! if this song wasnt good...do you really think it would have gotten popular?! pachelbel wrote this in the baroque period. where the only people who could listen and judge music were musically inclined. probably more than you are.

    music from that time just wouldnt pick up if it wasnt good...because of its audience. do you really think "in the club" would have cought on back then? HELL NO. im not saying its a bad song, but its nowhere near the master piece that is canon in d.

    re:btpanther39
    I apologize for spelling canon wrong. But I still hate this song. It`s not like the first time I heard this piece, I suddenly chose to hate it. No, actually, I have listened to this piece for 18 years. I have been forced to play it for 15 years. I used to actually love this piece. But you have no clue how annoying this song gets after the first 40 or so times. And honestly, the reason that a LOT of people TODAY like this piece is because of it`s simplicity. There is nothing spectacular about this song. And people try to make it better by modernizing it. It really doesn`t help. It`s still the same 7 chords, except they`re now stealing them from a dead guy. Also it`s a very common chord progression. People recognize it from current songs and immediately identify with it. I have no clue as to why you think "In the club" is a good comparison to classical music. I think that it just reflects your actual musical tastes. But I agree. It would not have been popular

    As far as the guitarists` talents are concerned, I commend them for their abilities. But there is a lot of music that was popular during the baroque, classical, and romantic periods that people don`t recognize or appreciate today. You know why? Because it`s too intricate. It`s too complex. They can`t rap about high school on top of it. They can`t shred a solo on guitar on top of the inversions and augmentations. I would be impressed by that. I`m not going to keep on about my musical inclination. I know I`m talented, if you knew me, you`d agree. I don`t need to argue over the internet to prove my talents.

    I`m glad the music moved you, but I don`t understand what you`re saying in the second comment. I think it`s supposed to be offensive, but I just can`t tell. Also, if I were to grace you with a rendition, you`d probably be so ridiculously gobsmacked, you`d die.
