Burning Love Chords - Tutorials

For the record, I use a Drop D Tuning in the playing of Burning Love. To me it sounds fuller with one guitar, but you can use a standard tuning guitar. There are only four chords and they are D-G-A and a Bm. There is a free pdf chord sheet for this one so feel free to download it. Below is the website version of the chords and lyrics.
