Product Description

Along with Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen is one of those monumental figures of singer-songwriting who commands the highest level of respect. With such a remarkable output, it’s not hard to imagine an artist like Cohen running out of things to say, but that certainly doesn't appear to have happened: with his most recent album Popular Problems, Leonard Cohen has remained consistently prophetic and poetic, and his song Almost Like The Blues is no exception.

The song features an R&B infused bassline that complements a smooth, almost jazz-like piano part. Cohen’s voice is almost Tom Waits-esque in its raspy quality, a faint smokiness perceptible in his soft delivery, sometimes falling to a whisper. The lyrics tell an intriguing story, in front of subdued backing singer harmonies. With this Almost Like The Blues sheet music, not only can you learn the notes and lyrics of Leonard Cohen’s vocal part exactly as he intended it, you also get the song transcribed for Piano and Guitar, letting you perform the perfect accompaniment to the voice as well.
