On Learning Music

After recently watching an anime series (La Corda d'Oro) which glorified violinists and other classical musicians, I found myself aimlessly wandering YouTube seeking inspiration from those gifted with real musical talent.
Several funny cat videos later, I stumbled across something known as the Canon Rock. You may recall the memorable melody of Pachelbel’s Canon from an early snippet of your youth, except some clever composers these days have ‘modernised’ it. No longer will you have that twitchy urge to hit fast forward until you reach the chorus, because now the entire piece is nearly the same degree of awesomeness all the way through.
