Eventually, after playing it so many times, I started to experiment with...interesting fingerings. First I would do 8 notes with only the 1st finger, then 8 with the 2nd finger, etc. etc. Then I'd do a sequence with the fingering 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4. And then there was the all-thumb fingerings. That hurt.

There's no good fingering for those eight notes. Either you're making big bright open strings that stick out all over the place or your shifting and stretching everywhere.

Occasionally I got pretty darn sick of shifting down to that one low D so I just stick my chin there. Works pretty well, but vibrato can be pretty painful.

He didn't even mention how awkward the fingering is for those eight goshdarned notes. Feels like your trying to feel your way through a car radiator.

Then you start hearing that same gid danged chord progressions in every freaking song you hear...even rap.

But hey...the money is good. People can never get enough of that darned song.

actually songwriting in general encourages chord progression that take the same pattern, pachabel just found a really good sounding combination of many common progressions. I've been fooling around with chords and stuff for a while, and it's pretty interesting.

Some folks on here were even discussing this in a thread in the old off topic boards, about how they would listen to songs they weren't familiar with and try to guess at the next chord by humming it before it played, and they got it right quite frequently. The chord progression concepts are a big reason why improv bands can actually work
