i'm a complete newbie to ukes and other string instruments and have been given a uke without strings. i bought a set of aquila strings for it but wondered....

what is the proper way to install the strings both at the bridge and at the tuning pegs so the strings don't slip or cause other troubles?

thanks for any assistance.
