    Practice slowly until chord changes are more fluid. If you stumble with a chord change, practice slowly at least ten times on the two or three troubling finger positions before attempting the progression at your earlier speed.

      Excellent technique for learning difficult passages. If you can’t play it slowly, you can’t play it up to speed. One important point here is that often people just keep practicing their mistakes by trying to master a passage while playing it faster than they can play perfectly. What they are really doing when they do this is practicing their mistakes… and they usually get very good at it.

    “Ukulele for Dummies” – I actually saw this book at Barnes and Noble. Don’t know how well you can learn to play from it, though.
