Somewhere between Canon in D and Tenacious D is this:

At our wedding we had a string quartet instead of an organ. It was probably my favorite aspect of the whole ceremony, bride excluded. Canon in D was our wedding march. But not this version.

I see him playing the guitar, but I hear backup and drums. Are they hiding under the desk?

Via Don.

    I love the bit at 3:50ish onward when he goes into various different keys. I’ve seen this before through Metafilter, but love listening to it every time.

    There’s a whole CD out there by an act called Liv and Let Liv that does the Canon in D as surf-rock instrumentals. “Surf-rock” as in “Sleepwalk,” not as in “Walk Don’t Run.”
