Unchained Melody Chord Chart

Welcome to my Unchained Melody chord chart by the Righteous Brothers. This was a student request so thought I would put it up here. This song isn’t too bad. Most of it is easy chords but there is a Eb and an Fm that we have to contend with towards the end of the song. Now if you are not familiar with barre chords, don’t worry about playing them. Count the beat then continue when you get to the next chord. If you are familiar with power chords, you can always play a Eb power chord and an F power chord.

This song is in 6/8 time which means we will be counting to 6 for each chord. In the verse, each chord is played for two measures while in the chorus, they are played for one measure.

1 2 3 4 5 6

If you wan to accent the 1st and 4th beat, go right ahead.
