I’m Slowly Turning Into You
By The White Stripes
Icky Thump, 2007

Tabbed by Thomas Buhler

Standard Tuning (EADGBe)

This song has uses a lot of dotted notes for a more rag-y feel to it, which can’t be 
in this tab. I tabbed this the best I could, but dotted rhythms are hard to tab for 
If you’ve listened to the song (I’m sure you have), be sure to abide by this rhythm.

[Intro]
G (ring) F F N.C. x4
(repeat pattern)
The last 2 times I play this chord progression (and the rest of the song), I play G 
in order to emphasize percussion, but I left the extra G out so you can play the song how it 
played on the organ.

[Verse 1]
G                    F F N.C.
  I’m slowly turning into you
        G
But you don’t know this
F  F N.C.
To be true
            G
You say I’m lying and I never really
F    F N.C.
Tell you the truth
G          F    F N.C.
  But your face is getting older
G             F    F N.C.          G F F N.C.
  So put your head on my shoulder.
G               F    F  N.C.       G F F N.C.
  Yeah put your head on my shoulder.

[Verse 2]
G              F   F N.C.
  Yesterday it hit me that I do
        G
All the little things
     F   F N.C.
That you do
             G
Except those same little things
         F
That you do
F N.C.
Are annoying.
G           F  F N.C.
  They’re annoying as hell in fact
G            F      F N.C.
  It kind of struck a little bell in fact
G           F    F N.C.
  I like to keep my little shell intact.

5th time:  And I’m slowly          turning         in   -    to you x2

G F F N.C. x2

[Verse 3]
G                     F    F N.C.
  Then something else came to mind
                 G
And that was the mirror
        F    F N.C.
It made everything clearer
G                  F   F N.C.
  That you’re more beautiful
               G
Compelling and stronger
          F  F N.C.
It didn’t take much longer
G                F  F N.C.
  Just for me to realize
               G
I love all the little things
        F   F N.C.
And the beauty that they’re gonna bring
G                   F F N.C.
  I dig your little laugh
                    G
And I’m loving your quick wit
       F    F N.C.
I even love it when you’re faking it!
G                        F  F N.C.
  And this might sound a little strange
          G
For me to say to you

But
    F F N.C.
I’m proud to be you.

G F F N.C. x4 (keep playing through guitar solo)

This is much better than the others. Hundreds of mistakes in the others.

One change I would make though is for this part...

e|-------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------|
G|-----------7-5-3-2-3p2---0-----|
D|---------------------------0---|
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|


to play it like


e|------------------------------|
B|------------------------------|
G|-----------7-5----------------|
D|----------------8-7-8p7--5-0--|
A|------------------------------|
E|------------------------------|

and the same sort of thing for the others lines similar to this.

great tab.

the solo in this one is played too low... listen to the song
and the bridge is played with 5th chords not single notes!!!

Someone could tab the solo in the end... plz
