As mentioned before, Canon in D follows a repeating 8 chord progression: D A Bm F#m G D G A. Since you are learning the powerchord version of Canon first you don't have to worry about major or minor chords (powerchords are neither major nor minor). This gives us a powerchord progression of: D5 A5 B5 F#5 G5 D5 G5 A5.

Pachelbels Canon In D

Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel was written over 300 years ago and has become very popular in modern times. Canon in D major is Pachelbels most well known piece and is often played at weddings and graduation ceremonies. The opening chord progression and melodies are instantly recognizable in this famous classical piece.

Canon Theory

In music theory a Canon means that a main melody (the 8 chord progession in this case) is followed by counterpoint melodies that imitate the original melody. The parts are layered over each other, beginning with the main melody. Pachelbel's Canon in D is made up of a repeating 8 chord progression: D A Bm F#m G D G A.

Canon Rock

Originally written for 3 violins and a bass, Canon in D has been adapted to include other instruments such as pianos, organs, harps - and now electric guitars to give us the amazing Canon Rock! This video begins with an Acoustic Canon intro, then moves to an electric intro solo, then the powerchord canon rock riff and finally the canon solo melodies. This video will also teach you the Canon powerchord progression and all lessons are available to members as a special bonus.


"I love you man! - I won a school contest because of this! I thank YOU very very much!"
