Product Description

Pachelbel's Loose Canon Composed by Johann Pachelbel. Arranged by Lagq. For Guitar Ensemble. Published by Mel Bay Publications Inc. (Catalog # 21756, UPC: 9780786684120)

Mel Bay is pleased to present the long-awaited publication of the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet's "loose" arrangement of the Pachelbel's Canon for four guitars . Originally intended as an inside joke for the LAGO members, this clever and comical send-up of Pachelbel's beautiful (and somwhat overplayed) melody has become a standard LAGQ encore and an internet sensation. Featured in performan ce on the Mel Bay DVD LAGQ Live at the Sheldon, this unique arrangement presen ts the prinstine Baroque theme, and then adapts it in a number of unexpected m usical styles: Reggae, slasa, bluegrass, jazz, flamenco, disco, and even punk. This is the only arrangement in the LAGQ repertoire that was a true group-pro ject with all four members (John Dearman, William Kanengiser, Scott Tennant an d Andrew York) contributing as a special bonus, new LAGQ member Matt Greif has added an alternative solo for the jazz section. Carefully notated to capture the nuances of LAGQ's stylistic flair, the parts are presented in a standard n otations as well as in tablature for those less familiar with note-reading. It 's a challenging and fun re-imagining of a timeless classic.
