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).

Happy 1372 Overton Park Day

Today's the official release date for the new record, so I figured it was time for an update. If you haven't bought it yet, you should. In fact, you should buy it directly from the band.

I met my goal of getting a tab up for every song by the release date, you can find them all on the record's tab index page. I've got leads and solos for almost everything, but it's gonna take some time before I work through Brian's whole lead on Sixes and Sevens. That might even get split into its own post.

After that, it'll probably be quiet here for a while. I'm always revisiting old tabs to look for mistakes and/or add solos. As I get better, the old tabs seem to get worse. So there's always something to improve. Somehow I never posted Brian's leads from Bikeriders. I'll fix that soon. I'm also working on the terrific solo from The Last Song (probably Ben's best solo). That'll get posted pretty soon, too.

I'd love to do another interview, but now that they're doing "real" publicity to support the release, it's gonna be hard to get on their schedule. That may have to wait.
