Music Thursday: The Piano Guys “Rockelbel’s Cannon”

Because Monday is already taken. This column will feature music I listen to when I write, or maybe sometimes music I just like (and therefore think everyone else should, too).

My wife plays the cello. Cellists hate Pachelbel’s Cannon in D because the cello part is the same eight notes over and over for the entire piece. I can understand why to an extent.

All of the parts are played by Steven Sharp Nelson from The Piano Guys, cloned for the video.
