Hallelujah Guitar Tab

There are many different versions of this song, but the original was sung by Leonard Cohen in 1984.  Ever since that time it's been covered by various artists and some have even changed the lyrics a bit.  I've decided to tab the version by Rufus Wainwright.  You might recongnize this version since it was used in the movie 'Shrek'.

NOTES

The version tabbed here consists of the C Chord Progression (that's C, Am, F, G) played in succession,
arpeggio style.

That simply means that the notes of the chords are being plucked individually, instead of being strummed.
