About This Blog

I started this blog because the tabs on the Lucero message board kept getting lost when they switched sites. A blog isn't a perfect forum for guitar tabs and chords, but it now has posts for all but a handful of their songs. And, to the best of my knowledge, this is the only source for Lucero tabs that has been endorsed by an actual Lucero guitarist. Accept no substitutes.

Holy shit! That's how that goes... www.lucerotabs.blogspot.com

General Thoughts on Lucero Chords

Ben seems to favor chord variations that fret the B string at the third fret. If a C, Em, G, or A doesn't seem quite right, try:
Cadd9 (x32030), Em7 (022030), G (320033), Asus (x02230)

Also, I think he leaves the E string open on a lot of his D chords (xx0230).

Hate and Jealousy

This tab is based off of the acoustic version on the TMFW bonus disc. It's pretty much the same as the electric version, though.

Em7
I got enough of jealousy
_________Cadd9
And hate inside of me
___G________________D
To keep me warm, it keeps me warm

Em7
Can’t settle for nothing less
_______________Caddd9
Been trying to prove myself
______G_________________D
Since I was born, since I was born

Riff sequence

D_______________________________Cadd9
Helplessness just burns me up inside
D______________________________Cadd9
I can’t see the Savior for the light
D___________________________________Cadd9
Wanting what ain't yours may not be right
D___________________________________Cadd9
But I want nothing that ain’t truly mine


If I could I would stop caring
But I don’t like hearing
I’m not good enough, I’m not good enough

I know that it’s not too late
But I don’t want it no other way
I'll let it burn me up, let it burn me up

Riff sequence

Helplessness just burns me up inside
I can’t see the Savior for the light
Wanting what ain't yours may not be right
But I want nothing that ain’t truly mine

Break:
G D G D Em7

Riff sequence

Helplessness just burns me up inside
I can’t see the Savior for the light
Wanting what ain't yours may not be right
But I want nothing that ain’t truly mine
