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).

So we've really gotten to the point where there's not too much left to post. I'll probably try to do three more new songs: Darken My Door, Darlin' Do You Gamble, and Johnny Davis. (Speaking of which, I could sure use a hand figuring out the lyrics to Johnny Davis so I can lay out the chords. There's a video of it up on the main page of their site, but he sounds like his mouth is full of marbles.) I'll probably also go back and add solos to some songs that are missing them.

I may also have time to bang out a couple more videos in December. I'm thinking I Can Get Us Out of Here Tonight and maybe Tears Don't Matter. I haven't been bothering with them because they're kind of a lot of work.

One way or another, there's not gonna be as many new posts as before. I may post some crap just to keep Google from thinking the blog has lost its relevance.

Darlin' Do You Gamble! Yes!

Well, I just found this blog and it is incredibly relevant to me. I have just started to get into some of the songs now, but the tabs look great and the videos that do exist are going to be very helpful. Thanks!
