Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley

This cover of the song is amazing, I especially like the version on You Tube, however this simple and quick take down I did is from the album Grace. It contains the opening improvised section and then arrives at the verse and goes through one chorus. It's not easy to read straight away, because of the capo 5 this makes reading much harder. What I chose to do was make another version in standard tuning with some chord boxes which can act as a preparatory step towards playing it higher up the fretboard. Once your familiar with the chord shapes and fingering patterns it should make reading the capo 5 version much easier. Enjoy.

P.S Leonard Cohen wrote this song and it will always be his, but I've never heard someone cover a song better than this.
