In this video we go over the easiest (and most accurate) way to play Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen. We also show you a simple technique, called “arpeggiation,” that will allow you to pick out single notes from the chord shapes to make it sound more like the Jeff Buckley version.
We also show you a strumming pattern that captures the rhythm of the song and is not too difficult (it’s only downstrokes!). And if you’re having trouble with the timing I we teach you how to count along to the song in a reallllly simple way.
