An initial attempt at a viola cover of Leonard Cohen's fine tune - Hallelujah.

Its got a way to go still - but you'll maybe see what I'm aiming for with my arrangement...

Thank you @Schaick - it still needs a fair bit of work, but I know where I want it to go, while still keeping the tune recognizable !  Another few hundred play-throughs and I'll have it the way I want it -roflroflrofl

Thank you @Fran - and an interesting observation - that's exactly what I was intending - almost as if there was a slightly out-of-phase "counterpoint" - or some type of "melodic echo" to the basic melody, without actually double-stopping all the way through....   but - well - I was just experimenting with it...   let's see how it finally turns out...

Oh so awesome!  I'm loving it!

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

Ahhh, Georganne @1stimestar - thank you....   I'm wondering myself just exactly how it will finally turn out....  probably not much different, but definitely much "cleaner"....

@BillyG 

Hello ...so nice buddy.  I love it.

I sent you my version that is dull and boring.  I have a way to go on it.  I will post something soon too.

Thank you for sharing.

Good job... I hope you post more.

Cheers
