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).

Chain Link Fence

I think they play all the chords as power chords, so the A minors are really A5s, etc. Also, in between the A and C chords the bass stops briefly at B; you can drop a quick B5 in there if you're playing on your own.

F Am B C

Well she's sitting right there on the chain link fence
she's down at the park with the rest of her friends
and she looks so pretty but she's only sixteen
didn't know that when she smiled at me

Now the boys are hunched over their electric guitars
I'm lying in the grass out beside my car
I followed her down to the Dixie Freeze
Hold on, hold on, hold on to me

Sweet girl
Don't let go for the world

Cause I'm not from here
And I'm afraid that I might never see you again

F, F, Am, C

Chorus riff:

(Played in place of the A#s and Fs)


Lead riff:

This is just a first draft. I'm not even positive it's played on two strings.
