Leonard Cohen was a singer / songwriter who had a recording career from 1970s till his death in 2016. I have records of more than 75 of his songs so, yes he has inspired me. I probably listen to some of his songs every other day. Some of his finger-picked guitar accompaniments are great too.

There is a lesson on Justin’s site for Leonard Cohen’s song ‘Hallelujah’.

Here is one of his great songs, performing with his fellow Canadian, Judy Collins in 1976.

Hope you listen to more of his songs.


I find your song very beautiful Brian…and yes it made me think…the repetitive Rhythm gave me the sense of that balance and was somehow soothing.


Thank you.
