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).

The State of the Blog

At this point, I have tabs posted for about 90% of all the songs that appear on a Lucero record. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that no other web site has more.

Having gotten the bulk of the songs up, now I'm going back to check the quality of the posts. I've found a bunch with small typos and mistakes already, and a handful that are just terrible tabs (wrong chords, etc.) I'll fix that stuff as quickly as I can. If you've tried a tab that seemed wrong, give it another shot in a few days. Maybe it'll be better.

You've probably noticed that today I learned how to expand the width of the rows. This is good because for some tabs I was being forced to use a font that was much too small to be legible. I'll go back and fix those soon, too.

After I get those things squared away, the next step is to add another index for songs that haven't been on studio records. That'll give me a place to put stuff like Crystal Blue.

By the time I get done with that, I should have Ben's new EP and that'll give me another section to work on.
