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).

Ben's New EP

For anyone who may not know, Ben Nichols has a new solo side project EP called The Last Pale Light in the West. It's seven songs all based on the novel Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy, and it's terrific. I guess the CDs aren't going to be available for a while, but you can pre-order and get an instant digital download right now.

So what are you waiting for?

I'll create an index for it and start posting tabs soon.

Thanks for the heads up!

What'll this take you? A week? ;-)

More than that, but hopefully not too much more. I'll try to do at least two a week.

Are there any tabs up for this beautiful album yet? I don't have the title track.
