” Hallelujah ” By Leonard Cohen – Ukulele Playalong
Ukulele Chords & Lyrics On 2 Sheets ( PDF ) This song originally released in 1984 on Leonard Cohen's album "Various Positions". We used this version for this ukulele tutorial. It's written in the key of C major with a 6/8 beat. The tempo varies around 56 bpm. The strumming is very simple, just alternating up- and down strokes. Try to keep up with the rhythm. If you can play this playalong, you might try some more difficult strumming patterns. Mr Cohen once told Bob Dylan that it took him two years to write the song. More than 100 renditions of the song have been recorded. Jeff Buckley recorded one of the best-known versions of "Hallelujah" for his album "Grace" in 1994. The rendition of John Cale ( former Velvet Underground member ) was used for the score of "Shrek". Friendly Fred
