    Quite nice but not terribly accurate... Quite some missing notes especially in the LH, some wrong ones, and some rushes in the tempo (although overall the tempo is quite steady which is an improvement). Too much pedal, also.

    But you were supposed to play Bach, not Pachelbel... everybody can play this easy listening music. Get to work on the Inventions and Sinfonias, or some WTC pairs. If you want something challenging to improve digital accuracy, nothing beats the Prelude from Bach's 2nd English suite. Actually quite a tiring piece requiring considerable stamina. Try that 3 times in a row and you're done in for a while.

    Hi John,
    Sort of echoing what Chris stated, my question to you is, "Why not piano music?" There is little music more boring IMO than Pachelbel's Canon, and there is such great piano literature at elementary levels. Please try some real piano literature. :|

    Hi John,

    I agree with the others. Sorry, but this cannot go up on the site. I did feel a little like I just attended a wedding, though. :)

    thanks guys, Chris, this is a version from Internet. Threre are weird LH G notes that I sought was wrong, but I still played it. Anyway. Folks, My attemp for this Canon, is because I have never played this before, and some one asked me to play it for him..so so see how I go.
    About the pedal....I used it all the time, but I suppose, I should not use it at all since the room is quite small.
    Thats ok Piano Lady, I was confused either go on site or not. It does not matter. But the tune is nice, I like it.
    Let me dig out some small Bach muiscs and challenge your critics. 8)
