LUCKY
by Seven Mary Three
from their latest album Rock Crown
transcribed by Denis Severino

This is my translation of this tune and it's pretty straight forward.
Standard tuning, no capo.  The verse and chorus have only one chord with
changing base notes and there is a brief bridge near the end which is a
piece of cake.  In my opinion, 7m3 performs this song so well because  the
vocals are sung with such emotion, with the back up picking guitar adding
to this, and the cymbals create an effective and spontaneous build up
leading to the chorus.  I haven't heard it in a while but I believe I
remember an organ in the background.   Anyways, have fun and if you have
any comments I would be pleased to hear them at mseverino@geocities.com

Verse:

-------0-------0--------0------|-------0-------0--------0------|-------3-------3--------3------|-------4-------4--------4------|-------2-------2--------2------|-------4-------2--------0------|
You can probably figure out the strumming pattern on your own. This is the same chord with three different base notes. A tip is to hit the base note signally then strum the chord a few times again hitting each base note signally a few times during the progression. The chord leading into each chorus is an E major which replaces the chord with the E base note as shown above. Chorus:
-------0------0------0------0------0------|-------0------0------0------0------0------|-------4------4------4------4------1------|-------4------4------4------4------2------|-------2------1------X------X------2------|-------X------X------4------2------0------|
Same kinda thing as the verse but more powerful. I strum the chorus as opposed to the verse where I pick one or two string at a time. Bridge:
------0------0-------|------0------0-------|------1------3-------|------2------4-------|------2------4-------|------0------0-------|
This is the bridge between the two choruses at the end of the song. This part should be played softly.

Vanderpoel After trying to play along with the cd, I realized the above version wasn't quite right. I caught them playing on Letterman and saw the chords they used there, which also play perfect with the cd. Here they are: Chords:
