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).

Joining the Army

E_______________________________________B
Told you I was joining the army, had no excuse
B__________________________A
Seemed the right thing to do
____B_____E_________A
And you called me a fool
A___________________B________E
Said I'd come back mean and cruel
E___________________________________________B
I said I just wanted to make my grandfather proud
B____________________A
Even though he's not around
B________________E__________A
Been gone since, I was thirteen
A___________________________B___________E
I'm still worried what he'd think about me
E________________________________________________B
Playing this guitar just ain't gonna cut it, for long
B________________A___________B__________________E________A
Me singing these songs don't compare to what he did over there
A___________________B________E
Need to prove I can carry my share
A__________B____________E
Take on my own load and bear
A________B_________E
To me it all seems fair

Gives it a little flavor I think.

Great job on this site! Good Lucero tabs are hard to find.
