She & Him – Turn to White

She and Him – Turn to White (Chords)

I’m still enjoying She & Him Volume 3. Definitely their best so far. I did I Could’ve Been Your Girl when it came out. And since then I’ve had a few requests for Turn to White. The album’s ukulele track. Which I’m more than happy to do. Unlike that song she did with Prince which I’m not going to do no matter how many requests I get.

To play along with the record you’ll need to tune down a step to F# – B – Eb – G#. But if you can just play it exactly the same in standard tuning if you can’t be arsed retuning.



If you want to play it picking style use the thumb and two finger method. With the thumb covering the g- and C-strings. You can just use this pattern with all the chords in the song.

Here’s how it looks slow then up to speed.

Suggested Strumming

You can use this as the main strum:

d – x u – u d u

Which sounds like this:


Or just replace the chnk with an up strum:

d – d u – u d u

    Just wondering if you had any tips for getting a soft release on the Gmaj7 chord. I’m finding quite a bit of ringing out in the transition to the all open Am7, and I noticed none of that in your video. Thanks!

    Michael: It should help if you relax your grip on the strings gently rather than pulling off the strings. So you’re sort of damping the strings.
