Lucky Chords
Lucky (Radiohead; OK Computer)

OK, this is my first tab so there could still be a few mistakes in it. 
The chords I found elsewhere were basically correct, but not very detailed,
so there were some improvements to be made.
Listen to the song for the right strumming (very important for this song)
I play it on an acoustic but I don't fingerpick, I just play chords,
I think it sounds good like this.

verse:
Em       Am   G        Bm           Em(1x)
I'm on a roll. I'm on a roll...this time
C (play early and quick)  G       Bm           Em(2x)
  I...                    feel my luck could change.
Em      Am    G        Bm            Em(1x)
Kill me Sarah, kill me again...with love.
C(early and quick) G    Bm        Em(2x)
  It's gonna      be a glorious day

(maybe there's a fast Asus4 played after the Am, I'm not sure)

chorus:
Em      A   Asus2    Em     Em/F#    
Pull me ou- t of the aircrash,
Em      A   Asus2    Em/F#
Pull me ou- t of the lake,
G             A    Asus2  Em  Em/F#
   Cause I'm your su-  per....hero.
Em   C7(2downstrums)  Bm7
W're standing on the edge.

(the Asus2 is played fast)

OK thats all still quite simple. Now the strumming on the Em.
Throughout the verses and the small interludes, the Em at the back of the sentences 
is ALWAYS played like this:

E 0 X 0 0 0 X X
B 0 0 X 0 0 0 X
G 0 0 X X 0 0 0
D 2 2 X X 2 0 2 
A 2 2 X X X 2 2
E 0 0 X X X X 0
(listen to the song for the right pattern!)

The 2nd and the 4th Bm in the verses can be played like this:

E 2 2 2 2 0
B 3 3 3 3 3
G 4 4 4 4 4
D 4 4 4 4 4 
A X X X X X
E X X X X X

Between the 1st chorus and the second verse there is a little interlude
that should be played like the Em strumming pattern above,
played 4 times(if you don't want to fingerpick).

The secund verse and chorus are played in the same way as
the first ones.

Then comes the outro (solo) which is played like this, I guess,

E  X  0 0 0 0 0 0 0   0  0  0     X X X 0
B  X  7 7 7 7 7 7 7   5  3  1     X X X 0
G  X  0 0 0 0 0 0 0   0  0  0     0 0 0 0
D  X  X X X X X X X   X  X  X     X X X 2
A  X  9 9 9 9 9 9 9   7  5  3     2 3 2 2 
E  0  0 0 0 0 0 0 0   0  0  0     2 3 2 0
    PM             PM  PM PM              PM
Played like this the 1st and 2nd time (with distortion,
but also great on an acoustic)

3rd time:
E   0 0 0 0 0 0 0   0  0  0       X X X 0  
B   7 7 7 7 7 7 7   5  3  1       X X X 0
G   0 0 0 0 0 0 0   0  0  0       0 0 0 0
D   9 9 9 9 9 9 9   7  5  3       X X X 2
A   9 9 9 9 9 9 9   7  5  3       2 3 2 2
E   0 0 0 0 0 0 0   0  0  0       2 3 2 0
                 PM  PM PM 
4th time: 
E   0 0 0 0 0 0 0   0  0  0  
B   7 7 7 7 7 7 7   5  3  1
G   0 0 0 0 0 0 0   0  0  3
D   9 9 9 9 9 9 9   7  5  3  
A   9 9 9 9 9 9 9   7  5  3
E   0 0 0 0 0 0 0   0  0  0 Fade out
                 PM  PM PM
It's important to mute the strings inbetween!

OK, now the next part (only the chord stuff!!):

E  F#(strum long and fast) F#m (about 4 strums)
now play the chords from the chorus again, and end on
C7(2strums) Bm7

About the artist behind Lucky Chords:

Radiohead are an English alternative rock band from Oxfordshire. The band is composed of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, piano, electronics), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, other instruments), Ed O'Brien (guitar, backing vocals), Colin Greenwood (bass guitar, synthesisers) and Phil Selway (drums, percussion). Radiohead have released seven albums and have sold over 23 million records throughout their career.[1]

Radiohead released their first single, "Creep", in 1992, and their debut album, Pablo Honey, in 1993. Though initially unsuccessful, "Creep" was a worldwide hit when reissued a year later. Radiohead's popularity in the United Kingdom increased with the release of their second album, The Bends (1995). The band's textured guitar atmospheres and Yorke's falsetto singing were warmly received by critics and fans. With the release of OK Computer (1997), Radiohead were propelled to greater fame worldwide. Featuring an expansive sound and themes of alienation from the modern world, OK Computer has often been acclaimed as a landmark record of the 1990s.

The release of Kid A (2000) and Amnesiac (2001) saw Radiohead reach their peak popularity, although the albums divided critical opinion. This period marked a change in Radiohead's musical style, with their incorporation of avant-garde electronic music, Krautrock and jazz influences. Hail to the Thief (2003), Radiohead's sixth album, blended styles from throughout the band's career, mixing guitar-driven rock, electronic influences and contemporary lyrics. Radiohead subsequently left their record label, EMI, and released their seventh album, In Rainbows (2007), through their own website as a digital download for which customers selected their own price.
