I agree completely with Othelia. Excellently worked out chord sequences!!

Drop the D's.... sounds horrid. I tried it a hundred different ways, different strumming and picking, open and barre chords... no dice. Nice work otherwise.

I aggree with K9181. Thats the way I learned it and it sounds great! Keep jammin' all

The D is not in the original. Except for the D, the chords are correct - they are just not in the key that the Animals played it. It is originally played in Am.

Othelia (report)

It's not acctually. These are right. Whatever you're playing must sound reeeeeal weird... Great job on the song by the way ^_^
