Hallelujah

Yes, another 80’s song! High five!

Hallelujah was written by Leonard Cohen in 1980. A very famous and popular version was recorded on guitar in 1994 by Jeff Buckley.

A version by Rufus Wainright was used in the 2001 film Shrek, featuring (another Canadian) Mike Meyers. Other famous artists to cover this song include Jon Bon Jovi.

So this arrangement is intended for linear ukulele, which means it sounds better on an ukulele that has the low G string on it.

That’s what I use.

(Actually, I use both.)

Hallelujah linear

The video below is a really good instructional by¬†Brett McQueen over at Ukulele Tricks, explaining how you can do two possible picking patterns, and how it fits together with the chords. I use a lot of his video’s both at his website and on youtube.
