Lesson notes

This is another of Leonard Cohen’s early masterpieces. It is hauntingly beautiful and thought provoking, and like many of his songs uses a simple, but unusual chord progression, some nice embellishments, and a regular arpeggio-picking pattern. Sounds easy, huh? The picking is very, very fast, creating an almost tremolo-like sound. Singing smoothly over the accompaniment bumps it up another level or two as well.
