Ukulele is easy as you have fewer strings than fingers. Use thumb for D string, index for G, middle for B, and ring finger for E. Some people like to use the pinky for support.

When I first started this February, and wanted to try playing fingerstyle rather than strumming, that was the approach that I took. I have subsequently started an introduction to classical ukulele book by Samantha Muir which is a little less simplistic. I am sure there are many approaches to this topic. I hope you enjoy your playing!
