Johann Pachelbel knew a good thing when he heard it -- the German composer found eight notes to use in his Canon, and doggone it, he stuck with those eight notes. But unless you're a cellist who'd secretly rather be working in a factory, "Pachelbel's Canon," catchy though it is, isn't all that fun to play. That is until!!
"Rockelbel's Canon," y'all. Oh yeah. Things get wonderfully jazzhandy in this video from The Piano Guys, featuring four clones of cellist Steven Sharp Nelson (a Hank Azaria lookalike who plays with light sabers) doing an arrangement he came up with while bored at a wedding (it happens) featuring only sounds made using a cello.
