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).

To play the G1 main riff you need to fret the D, G, and B strings all with your ring finger. Then you fret the G and C bass notes with your middle finger and the A# bass with your index finger. In a pinch, I guess you could just scrap the riff and play G5, A#5 and C5 chords, and it might sound okay.

Long dark hair and an angels touch
A beauty no man could control
