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).

Is That You I've Been Kissing

There's not too much to this one. The repeating riff that goes between the "A"s and "E"s seems to just be a quick slide on the G string:


Besides that, it's just chords.

We'd been kissing for hours
Before I felt her lips
Thought I was dreaming about her
Till I felt her finger tips
Well hello there
How did you end up here?
Is that you I've been kissing?
Is that you holding me near?
Now I didn't catch on
Quite as quick as I should
Im not sure if it's real
But it sure is good

If you ever kiss me
Kiss me again
And if I'm only dreaming
Then don't let it end
Well I'll hold on tightly
So you don't slip away
I'm not sure if you're real
But I sure hope you stay

Is that you I've been kissing?
Is that your hand in mine?
I didn't see it coming
But I do like it fine
I just hope when I wake up
That you're still by my side
Or will your kisses fade
With the morning light

I hope when I wake up
That you're still by my side
And then ill kiss you some more
In the broad day light
Is that you I've been kissing?
Is that your lips touching mine?
