    I had a guitar teacher that wanted me to play it for the hammerons etc, and he took pity on my natural baritone voice and taught it to me in E. It really sounds great on my 12 string and I usually do it as a solo number between sets at gigs. The crowds seem to always like it and hell they don't know it's supposed to be in D.

    Actually, the song IS in E. John played it out of a "D" position capoed on the 2nd fret, which is...E

    And, if it's hard for you to sing in "D"...wouldn't it be even harder to sing in "E"? E is a whole step higher than D...

      No one's said "Blackbird" yet? Great song to learn, and pretty easy.

        There are so many great Beatles songs to play acoustic! I love listening to the tracks on Anthology where they are rehearsing in the studio, very raw and powerful. Truly inspiring!
