For my cover song this month, I’ve included the Leonard Cohen-penned “Hallelujah” (made popular by the late Jeff Buckley). I learned the song to play at a family friend’s memorial service last month (which is why I cut out some of the more salacious lyrics). It’s such a beautiful song by a legendary writer.
I enjoy playing this song either on acoustic guitar OR on electric guitar (as Jeff Buckley recorded it). I find that different guitars evoke different emotions and performances… and which guitar I pick up depends on the mood I’m in at the time.
