About this tab version
Davy Jones wasn't a Londoner and this version isn't like his. It's closer to the original Hubert Gregg 1940s music hall version. For the intro, outro and verses try a heavy down up rhythm like a clock and switch to a bouncier down up down up for the chorus. You can miss out the verses altogether and just do the chorus several times. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming Are these strumming patterns correct? Yes No
