Getting error message when trying to SSH in my Amazon EC2 instance

Over the past few weeks, I've been setting up Panda in an Amazon EC2 instance. Everything was going great...I set up my account and tools and used SSH to interact with the instance. But all of a sudden, I can't get permission to get into Panda's EC2 instance. Here's what I'm getting:
@ WARNING: UNPROTECTED PRIVATE KEY FILE! @ Permissions 0644 for '~/.ec2/id_rsa-gsg-keypair' are too open. It is recommended that your private key files are NOT accessible by others. This private key will be ignored.
I've tried a few different things (chmoded my keypair to 600 so I can get into my personal instance) but nothing seems to be working. Any help would be great!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

400 (r– — —) is the only way you’re going to get the keypair to work.  SSH is very strict on the security and it isn’t afraid to tell you.

    You might want to use 400 as permissions for the key.  As the warning messages state, it should not be viewable by others.
