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).

Raising Hell


G Cadd9
well my little brother's raising hell

living down in Texas

G Cadd9
probably ought to be in jail

from the stories that he tells us

the whiskey nights and rodeos

the strippers down in Austin

he's had himself some real good times

Cadd9 D
if he could just recall them

G Cadd9 Em7
now his money's running out and there's a job in his future

G Cadd9 Em7
it's looking like his rambling days are done

D Cadd9
now he's sizing up his choices and a job just ain't one

G Cadd9 Em7 G Cadd9 Em7
he don't know which way to run

Chorus Riff

What are the extra walks and picking on the video. I'm confused.
