An intermediate piano arrangement of Jeff Buckley’s cover of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. I’ve simplified the rhythm to make the coordination easier. Click the image below to download the PDF.

I also have a beginner piano arrangement of Leonard Cohen’s version with single bass notes in the LH instead of arpeggios.

Note: “D.S. al fine” means “go back to the sign and then play until the end”, i.e. when you get to the end of bar 44 go back to bar 2, where the sign is, and then play all the way through to the end of bar 43, where you then jump to bar 45. Repeat bars 25-32 both times. The fingering follows the practice of using your 5th finger for white-note octaves but your 4th for black-note ones.

To do this tutorial, you need to know your major and minor triads really well, in different inversions, plus your major and minor 7ths, and tones and semitones.

To construct a “dominant” 7th chord (major triad with a minor 7th):

  1. play the root in the LH
  2. play the major triad in the RH in any inversion
  3. move the tonic in the RH down a tone

To construct a minor 7th chord:

  1. play the root in the LH
  2. play the minor triad in the RH in any inversion
  3. move the tonic in the RH down a tone

To construct a major 7th chord:

  1. play the root in the LH
  2. play the major triad in the RH in any inversion
  3. move the tonic in the RH down a semitone
