Take this longing

Leonard Cohen


[ Article crossposted from alt.music.leonard-cohen ] [ Author was Adi Heindl t4010 ]
There are not many tabs out for Leonard Cohen songs, execpt from his two albums Songs of L.C. and Songs from a room. So i'm interested in the way other people play his songs on the guitar. Perhaps You are also interested and we can put our information together to work out some new tabs. Here is a first proposal of "Take This Longing". The chords are from his anthology songbook. Feel free to critize the lines and tell what can be done better. Is this group the right place for such stuff or should i better stay at home? Thank You very much for reading these lines and for any answer.
