The video/tab mashup I made for ‘Canon Rock’ is a popular post here on GuitarTeacher and on my YouTube channel. Because the song uses super-sonic sweep picking, rapid position shifts and string-burning alternate picking, I often get requests to slow it down. So to help us mere mortals work toward getting the chops of FunTwo or JerryC here is my original video tab lesson slowed down to three-quarters the original tempo. Some audio artifacts occur when time stretching like this but I think it should still be usable.
Canon Rock Video with Tablature – Slow Version (75% Tempo)
If you want to decide for yourself how much or little to slow down the video (or speed up for you crazy shredders!), I am making the original video available for download here – Original GuitarTeacher Canon Rock video (.mp4 – Quicktime). Simply right-click and select “Save As…” to download to your computer. See my original post to get the tab and other resources.
Using Apple’s Quicktime Player you can time stretch and loop sections for practice. This is the format I now record my private online guitar lessons so all my private students can review their lessons with these same options tempo and looping options.
A tutorial on how to do this using the Apple Quicktime Player is available for Private Members at the end of this lesson.
