    I learn most my fingerstyle skills from Classical Guitar stuff -- books, articles, and videos.
    Especially if you like playing classical and traditional music, Classical Guitar can give pretty much good information.
    Caveat: you need to understand the differences between Ukulele and Classical Guitar.

    Not totally up-to-date, but Uke Nut (Fingerstyle Ukulele Resources) has links to a lot of excellent sites with fingerstyle tablature.

    Look for "Pekelo's Hawaiian ukulele method" books, I think there are Level 1 and 2, might be hard to find.

    When you finish all of these tutorials, if you can't fingerpick, sell you uke(s).

    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Here are some fingerstyle ukulele tutorial YouTube channels that I've been enjoying:
    Ukulele Time: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCC-...4FB35gw/videos
    Helmut Bickel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...oLFFo-ecP5tgPo
    Naoki Honma: https://www.youtube.com/c/adlibguita...amihara/videos

    There are lots of others. Depends a lot on what kind of music that you like.

    Take a look at (i) Kiyoshi Kobayashi Ukulele Jazz and (ii) Kiyoshi Kobayashi Ukulele Bossa Nova. The songs are very nicely arranged and they are highly recommended on Amazon. Not necessary to know Japanese to play the songs.

    This Korean lady plays from these song books beautifully :-
