If you want to play along with this version of the song, simply download the song from the Imagine page, place a capo on the second fret (this version is in the key of D), and play along. You could also open the Imagine page in a new window and split your screen. You can do this by a right-click on the 'Imagine' link and choose 'open link in new window'. You then need to resize both windows to suit... enjoy.
