Get Lucky chords



You can learn how to play Get Lucky – Daft Punk!

2013 was the year we all couldn’t stop dancing to Get Lucky by Daft Punk. The song went to #1 in over 20 countries!

It sold 6.5 million copies in the U.S and U.K, and obviously got song of the year at the Grammy Awards,

Written by Daft Punk, Nile Rodgers, and Pharell Williams over a period of 18 months, it wasn’t until everyone rerecorded their parts to fit around Nile’s guitar that it all fell into place.

Perhaps Get Lucky is not just the song of 2013, but the song of the decade!

Get Lucky chord progression

This is a diatonic chord progression, all chords could be found in the key of A/F#m. Bm is II, D is IV, F#m is VI, E is V.

However, neither A nor F#m is the home, instead, Bm is home and since that s chord II, Get Lucky is “in Dorian”, just like I Wish, Good Times, Scarborough Fair, and Mad World.

As the chord progression never stops looping the four chords BmDF#mE, the band can focus on playing well together and using dynamics in the arrangement, instead of remembering chords.

If you play in a band and you have a good relationship with the drummer, perhaps you could point out that there are no tom fills on the original recording and perhaps go on to explain how that’s why it’s so good…

Just make sure the drummer is not the band leader as you may have to look for a new band in the morning!
