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).

Goodbye Again

It's a happy day here at Lucero Tabs global headquarters. The boys were in the studio last week and a little bit of what happened inside has popped up on YouTube. The last minute of this video is a song that, apparently, will be on the new record. Funny thing is, it's not a new song at all. I have it on a concert recording from seven years ago. It's been one of the best rarities in my collection, so I was psyched to hear that it's being revived, and I sat right down to tab it out.


D
You left me cold but you still come around
G________________________D
Please don't knock on my door
D
You want to stay, I don't want you to go
______G_________________________D
But I know you don't love me no more
Bm__________________A
I tried and I tried time after time
_____D____________________G
I've given you all that I can
________Bm
Now I'm weak and I want you
______A
But I can't take the pain
G___________________D
Please say goodbye again



You come and you go just as you please
Don't care if you got no one else
Your voice is soft and your eyes are sweet
But they don't hold the love you once felt
Say goodbye one last time
I won't say goodbye again
Now I'm weak and I want you
But I can't take the pain
Please say goodbye again

________________Em7
And I know I've wasted time
_____G______________________D
Just waiting round here for you
_________________Em7
Please won't you say goodbye
____G________________D_A_D_A_D_A
And this time follow through

Sometimes all that I want
is just to see your sweet face
But I know better than to see you again cause
I know I can't make you stay
Say goodbye one last time
I won't say goodbye again
Now I'm weak and I want you
But I can't take the pain
Please say goodbye again

That was a great show. Are you going to post some more of them soon? If you have Sounds of the City, I have the chords worked out, but I'm hoping to post it with a link to a live video.
