UD#38 Sixteen Beat Strum: Steal My Kisses (Ben Harper)
from Ukulele in the Dark w/ Guido Heistek


OKAY, let’s look at Steal My Kisses by Ben Harper. The song has three chords in it: G C6 and D6. Here are the chords in open position on the uke:

And here are the chords “up the neck”:

NOTE: The D6 up the neck needs to be played at the 5th fret. There’s a little 5 there at the top of the diagram that is hard to see.

The progression goes like this:

| G                 |  C6                |  D6                    |  G                       |

Here is the song:

Here is a recording of me on guitar playing the basic strumming groove on a G chord. Listen to it a few times and then go on to the video below and I’ll teach the strum using the Hear the Strum approach:

Slow version:

Fast version:

Here’s a video of me teaching this strumming groove:


And a video showing how to put all the chords together. Enjoy!


That’s all for this week! See you in a couple of weeks.

All the best,
