Guitar and Ukulele Tabs for Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen)

Hallelujah is one of the truly great Canadian songs of all time, written by one of Canada’s best songwriters ever, Leonard Cohen. It is generally simple to play in terms of chords, and simple to hard to perform pending how much diva you want to put into your performance.

I’ve tabbed a version reasonably similar to the one sung by kd lang in the video below, though I’ve included the notes of the melody by which I sing it. Best version I could find out there, in my opinion.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Leonard Cohen

The nice thing about robust tunes such as this is that you can put all kinds of little variations in the phrasing and it wouldn’t matter much so long as you hit the right notes for the chord changes. So feel free to stray from my tabbed notes and just do it the way you feel it.

This is also a pretty long song so I’ve created several formats and sizes. Choose the one that works well for you.

If the letter size tabs (8.5″ x 11″) are too small for your eyes, you can either enlarge to tabloid size (11″ x 17″) using an automatic enlarge feature on many photocopiers, or download the tabloid sized versions for printing. The tabloid size tabs can be inserted into a typical letter sized binder on the 11″ size, and folded almost in half to fit. You just open each tab to use it.
