She and Him – Gonna Get Along Without You Now (Chords)

She and Him – Gonna Get Along Without You Now (Ukulele Version) (Chords)

It’s a shame there isn’t any uke on She & Him records. But at least Zooey Deschanel is busting out her K-Wave for live performances of this cover version.

The live ukulele version of the song differs from the album version (and the original version). It’s the ukulele version that I’ve written up. The main difference is the use of E minor in the chorus instead of Am7 (and she’s missed out a verse in this version whether by accident or design).

Suggested Strumming

In the chorus (and intro) for the C chord:

d – d u – u d –

You could use the same pattern for Am7 or you could fancy it up with this:

d u d u – u – d u

For the F and G7 one of these each

d – d u

Then you’re back to C for a bar before you restart.

In the verses is that the F and G7 chords last for twice as long (and there’s no final bar of C). So you can use this for each:

d – d u – u d u

    Thank you so much!! I’m a huge She & Him fan and can’t wait to learn this on the uke!!

    Thanks for this! And there is uke on She & Him records. I can’t remember what songs exactly but when I saw them live Zooey got the uke out for a couple of songs…

    I was at that show! It was freezing cold, but it was totally worth it to hear Zooey sing. Thanks for the chords.

    Thanks for the tab! I love this song. And thank you so much for this blog. I found it a few weeks ago and I’ve learned more on here in a few weeks then I have from my stupid beginners book that I’ve had for over a year. Thank you!!!!!!!

    Elle: You’re welcome. Have fun with it.

    Anna: I had a quick listen though it on Spotify and didn’t hear any ukes. I’ll give it a more careful listen.

    Emily: It does look rather cold in that video.

    Rachel: Thanks! Death to stupid beginners books (except mine).

    I was just listening to the song Lingering Still by She & Him and I think that there is some uke in it. I wish she played it more often in her songs though.

    Ah good stuff. I love She & Him (and M Ward and Zooey in their own rights). I will be learning a few songs and this one will be the start.

    Seen them in London and it was awesome to hear her sing, and even more awesome when she whipped out the uke.

    Zooey, you’re a star!

    justin: I wondered that, too. But I think it’s just overtones from the mandolin.

    kevkwak: Good luck with them.

    I’m so stoked that this is here. GO UKE! Go Zooey and Matt :)

    Sweet. Check out the Patience and Prudence original version too.

    Evelyn: Patience and Prudence are great.

    There is a ton of uke in She & Him’s records! Zooey is a great uke player. I want to find the chords to Lingering still though! It would be such a fun cover.

  14. Woodshed July 26th, 2011 8:37 am

    Chelsea: I wouldn’t say a ton. I was expecting more.

  15. Eireann O'Dea November 20th, 2011 7:31 am

    Yes! Thanks so much!! Love She and Him!

  16. Woodshed November 20th, 2011 8:02 am

    Eireann: You’re welcome!

  17. Faye January 14th, 2012 8:16 pm

    Where’s Zooey’s face?! Looks like a floppy hat’s singing the song! Thanks for the tab. I love She & Him.

    She and Him are making me think of buying a Ukelele. I tried Guitar for years but got nowhere as I really struggle with strumming. The Ukelele looks like it might be easier but I may just be fantasising.
