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

Thank you to the folks who have sent me submissions, suggestions, and corrections. Thanks also to anyone who posted a tab on the luceromusic.com boards. You can find me there posting as Boston Twang. You can also email me at lucerotabs@gmail. Submissions and/or corrections are greatly appreciated.

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).

Slow Dancing

Almost the entire song is just these chords:

Em7 Cadd9 (C) (Cmaj7) Am (Aadd9) Cmaj7

-0----0----0-----0----0----0------0----
-3----3----1-----0----1----0------0----
-0----0----0-----0----2----2------0----
-2----2----2-----2----2----2------2----
-2----3----3-----3----0----0------3----
-0-------------------------------------

The ones in parenthesis are just transitional chords that appear quickly in between the main chords.

Depending on how detailed you want to get, you can pick around the chords with an eye towards accenting the transitions instead of playing them straight up.

There is one other part where they break into Em7 then D then Cadd9. This appears twice in the song: once after "hell you smiled alot" and again after "hell you told me so."
