If you do not know how to play the ukulele, you will probably benefit from the beginner's lessons in the primary level. If you already know how to play a stringed intstrument, such as the guitar, you will find the beginner's lessons a great introduction to the unique requirements of a uke, but the lessons in the basic level will probably cover stuff you'll already know if you know how to play the guitar.

Basic uke lessons will teach you what you need to know to get by with a uke. You'll learn how to play the most common chords, how to change chords comfortably and cleanly, and you'll learn how to play either with other musicians or to accompany your own singing.

If you already know how to play, and find reading out of song books with chord charts simple, you're probably ready for advanced ukulele lessons. Here we lay done some of the very basic techniques for fingerpicker a ukulele - that is, rather than strumming, playing complicated things one string at a time.
