UNLUCK – James Blake

Heyyo this is my  first attempt at contributing anything to UG so be gentle. This song
is deceptively simple, basically two progressions which he places the vocals over in
different parts of the time signature. About halfway through the song he sings the verse 
over the chorus chords – I didn’t write that part in, y’all are smart cookies listen to the
song and figure it out.

The chords aren’t perfect but I think they’re pretty close. There is not guitar in the
song as far as I can tell but here are the voicings I use. Parentheses mean that the note
is there but  I don’t really play it.

In the  verse:
Eb: x 6 8 8 (8) x
Bb: 6 8 (8) 7 (6) x
Eb/G: x 10 8 8 8 x
D: 10 12 12 11 10 10
Gm: x 10 12 12 11 10
F6: x 8 12 10 x x

In the chorus:
Gm: 3 5 5 3 3 3
Dm: x 5 7 7 6 5
Eb: x 6 5 3 4 3
Bb: 6 5 3 3 3 x
Bb/A: 5 x 3 3 3 x

Chorus (or whatever?):

Dm                              Gm

Only child                      take good care

Eb                              Bb     Bb/A  Gm
