Me too! My friend left one at our house while he travels this summer. If you know some chords on guitar they are easily transcribed to the ukulele. Finger a chord shape like you would on a guitar (lower 4 strings), and you'll be playing a chord that's the 4th. For example D shape on guitar is G on uke. G is C. A is D.
To make a song sound Hawaiian try the 'vamp'. If playing in G play a A7 then D7 then G7. It's always 2, then 4 then 1.
If you throw that it for the intro, break or outro of any song it will make it sound hawaiian. (or course there is a lot more to it that I don't know.)
If you need a chord chart let me know and I'll scan mine and send it to you via a message.
JB, thanks for your kind offer but I am really a complete novice.
