There are not many tabs out for Leonard Cohen songs, execpt
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.
