Lesson notes

Leonard Cohen’s first few albums were full of gems, most of which were guitar-based songs. Famous Blue Raincoat is from Songs Of Love And Hate and features a standard 3/4 arpeggio picking pattern and an interesting chord progression, mostly in the key of D, although his guitar was tuned down a step in the original recording. The Preview section of the lesson includes an instrumental play through encouraging you to try the song as an ear-training exercise.
