Ukulele Utopia

A Virtual Learning Experience

Incubus – Drive


Made famous by that super cool animated video in the late 90s which was actually animated by the band themselves. Its a chord progression but there’s some super unique chords involved. Let’s learn to play it on a ukulele.

What Are We Learning To Play?

Below is a video of what you will be able to play by the end of this post.

The fist chord is a E Minor but we are playing the open G string. Then we have a G Maj7. It’s much easier to barre the bottom three strings on the 2nd fret. This way its more convenient to get into the next chord shape, the C Maj7. Just use your 3 remaining fretting fingers on the corresponding frets. Finally we are ending on a D Sus2 chord.
