Artist Billie Eilish
Album WHEN WE FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?
Genre
Note For Ebmaj7 it sounds a bit better as [1320] instead of [3335].
Note Alternative (maybe easier) version:
      - Use the transposer to turn the chords 3 half step(s) down.
      - Put a capo on fret 3 (if you want to stay in the same key).

I used Beat-d-u-beat-d
I think it sounds gr-8.
Get it? The song’s called 8?
No okay…. :(

Cuddles>:3

Oh that’s funnnnny lol ? huehuehuehue

llanesha00044

lol

Perfectly Imperfect

I used the strumming pattern D D U U
It sounds really nice and smooth when you play with this strumming pattern. But it sounds good with whatever strumming pattern you are comfortable with but this one is simple and it sounds like the original

Oof

I do pluck G string then duud for the first verse and Du tap D for the first part of the chorus then Ddu udu for the rest. And for the transition from chorus to interlude thing I pluck the G then C string while doing a C chord and then Du udu Ddu udu for the interlude. And after the first part of the chorus on the 2nd chorus I do the same thing as the transition. I also do c g7 dm then g for the chorus cause it gives variety to the pattern.

Cool panda

I use ddu udu udu udu and it sounds amazing

mariannepomu

The original chords are transposed on -3. C Cmaj7 F G. The strumming pattern that Billie used is DDU UDU UUD UUD and not the island strum (DDU UDU). Also don’t put a capo on the third fret, just strum the ukulele as it is. :) You can check her carpool karaoke video with James Corden for reference.

eurus

Oh god I can’t memorize something like UDU UUD lol but thanks for this, I’ll definetly try :)

Oof

Strumming doesn’t sound right, and you capo to stay in the same key.

mariannepomu

based on your comment, i can see that you still haven’t checked billie’s video playing it. she didn’t use any capo and im pretty much sure that the strumming pattern is right :)

TwentyOneRomancePanicBoysFallingOut!|-//

Capo on 3
C Cmaj7 F G
best chords to use ( also the original )
*tip* transpose down 3 to get original chords

Hannah

Westanabisexual

I thought is was C Cmaj7 Dm G

I panicked but it wasnt at a disco

Dm sounds good too, use either one ig

evie

omg thx sm, it sounds loads better 😊

Every word of this song I relate to. I just broke up with my ex a few weeks ago because he made me feel like I was worthless and he never put effort into our relationship and yet he still managed to make me fall in love with him. The line “Who am I to fall in love when your love never is for me” really really hit me hard. Billie is a true genius with her lyrics.

Anjali

aw im so sorry i hop you’re better now <3

crybaby

ohh noo!! if it helps me and my bf too broke up he used me for my bestfriend and lied about liking me

gabby

I hope your feeling better I’m sorry about dat…

thatasiannerd

Yea, the words “Who am I to fall in love when your love never is for me”. I felt that. I kinda like this boy, but he is interested in someone else, but I seem to get over him. I consider him my friend, but I don’t even know if he feels the same way about that.

And if he never put any effort in, he never really cared. There are lots of people who take advantage of those with a big heart. I have never been in a relationship, but I had friends that were my everything. They were everything. I was patient with them and took the time to help them, but I was just one of their “somethings”. I really care for the people I love, but they never cared for me. It was all about them, their life, their friends, they never took the time for me when I gave them everything.
Sorry that this is a really long message, but we are all in this together.
<3

gabby

Man I’m sorry about that…I can never imagine going through that…..Some lyrics in songs really hit us and tbh….No other artist can do that besides billie. She’s such an amazing songwriter and she’s the main reason to why I started playing ukelele.

Nevaeh Varela

Me too! Billie Eilish is amazing!

thatasiannerd

dang, that hits hit

llanesha00044

yeah u hope all is well now. but if any one makes u feel worthless they don’t deserve u :) always remember that

TwentyOnePanicsAtTheEilish

I looped this song when my school band went on a trip and this guy and i started dating but then he moved so now whenever i hear this song or “xanny” which is also a good song i start crying.

btw this album is a bop

Laugh at me now, Bow to me later

This song is really relatable. I can feel sadness and anger in her words. Billie Eilish and Taylor Swift will be remembered as some of the greatest songwriters ever,

Strumming pattern

The Strumming pattern is DDU UDU DDU UDU but only using your index finger. Just a tip. :-)

abbey

yea thats the island strum

Mara Ioana

hiiii i think this version is too complicated and i play it with C Cmaj7 F and G in this order as I saw Billie play it like this in a video and the strumming is DDUUDU

Lily Jones

-3 with capo on 3rd fret is how it is in the original :)

luci

this doesn’t sound much like the original, plus its not good for beginners! if you want something easier to play that sounds more like the original, do c, c major 7, f, and g with the strum pattern being dd u udu twice for each chord! and remember a capo on the 3rd fret for concert ukes, or the 6th fret for soprano ukes (im not sure about tenor ukes im sorryyyy). hopefully this helps someone out :)

inky

actually, you can put a capo on the 3rd fret for concert, soprano, and tenor ukuleles. all three have the same strings, plus you stay in the same key.

Meh...

I combined this song with adore you and called it 8dore you

Nevaeh Varela

I love that lol

eddie

in -3 it should be a d minor instead of an f

Oof

It’s up to personal preference. Dm makes it sound sadder so I like it most of the time, but when I’m happier for once I’ll do F.
