It depends on what type of song your trying to play. The pattern has to fit the tune. A lot of older folk guitar books etc. have some great picking patterns which you can adapt to uke. Presently I'm working on playing "Hallelujah"by Leonard Cohen. I listened to it and found an "arpeggio" pattern fitted the way I wanted to play it.

Now someone else may want to play it a different way, and use another pattern.

I'd suggest you may want to go to say:http://www.ezfolk.com/uke/Tutorials/Fingerpicking/fingerpicking.html
This maybe a good plase to start. Hope that helps. Peter

There are endless possibilities. Just mess around and you will eventually develop at least one cool pattern
