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).

Miss Patsy Cline

Having spent a bunch of time working on brand new Lucero tabs, I think it's time to go in the exact opposite direction.

This is one of my all time favorite Lucero songs. Legend has it that Ben doesn't want release it because he thinks it's too dorky. Well, he needs to get over it, because this song kicks a lot of ass. If you don't know it, once in a blue moon someone posts a live version on the message board, so try searching there.

I think the main riff only goes low on the second part of every cycle.

Main riff:

----------------------------------------

-7^-5---5--7^-5------7^-5---5--7^-5---5-
------7---------7-5-------7---------7---
----------------------------------------


G
Well she knows my sins, she knows my heart
G______________________________C____________________G
Knows my evil ways, Miss Pasty Cline Kills me every time


G
With a voice like an angel that cuts like a knife
G_______________________________C_________________G
Ain't nothing that I can hide tonight, Miss Pasty Cline
F
She knows my heart and I can feel it
C
Every time she falls to pieces


G
It ain't so crazy, ain't so strange
G__________________________________C_________________G
Always puts me in my place, that's right, Miss Pasty Cline
F
She knows my heart and I can feel it
C
Every time she falls to pieces

Thanks! Do you know anywhere one could hear this song? I've searched like crazy and can't find it...

Like I said in the post, the message board is the best place to look. I'm pretty sure there's an active link in one of those threads. Try searching for Patsy Kline with a K. Not everyone there can spell.

Thanks Noah! Found it with the "K".

Thanks for doing all these tabs, it's by far the best Lucero resource out there.

Hey, can anyone repost the tune. The link on the msg board to get the song is down.
Thanks...
