    The Daily Ukulele, & the Leap Year edition have notes, chords, & lyrics. Along with a chord book, & a fret board map, should see you well on your way. :)

    Then look for 'finger style' books.

    As a total beginner on stringed instruments, I'd suggest you start out on a concert scale uke, & my suggestion would be for an Ohana or a Kala, (you really should be thinking in the 3 figure area...

    Not an expensive one, but it sure sounds good, especially with (Living Water) fluorocarbon strings on it - the Kala Cedar Top. :)

    Aquila Red low G, Living Water concert low G fluorocarbons, no problems using them on soprano - & if you want to use a wound string, just tie knots on it as you would any other strings. :)

    Yep, someone got themselves a great uke at a bargain price - just not my scale; if it had been a tenor.........

    I use Audacity to record through a USB mic, then add pictures using Openshot, (you can add movie clips, cut & shut, etc.),

    (Both programs are free software - download from the internet.)

    I'm not a lover of sopranos, but I did have some Kalas, a KA-S & KA-SEME, & a Makala pineapple, all good ukes - of the three I would have kept the KA-SEME if I would have played soprano.

    Maybe...

    I'd also consider 19" as a baritone scale, it's unfortunate that most commercial baritones are now 20", as that is just a bit too big a stretch for me.

    Tuning it to DGBE would be a good idea, I've...

    My 'best' uke is an Opio long neck concert, I think you'll love yours - I also have a few Ohana solid mahogany ukes, one of which is again a long neck concert - I like their tone & 'feel'. :)

    I have a Kala KA-T, it's a good quality uke, & not too expensive - I use low G on mine, (& have had it in DGBE tuning also). :)

    Worth the money, it has a nice tone, & is fairly loud.
