One String Harmony Tutorial 

When we strum any chord, there are 4 notes we can sing. Learning to sing harmony, is learning how to sing these chord notes that are the basis for the song. This technique is useful when a melody is too high or too low for your voice. Pick one string on your ukulele, that you can sing to comfortably. The notes generated on that one string, are the notes that you sing.  View here.

Ukulele Movable Chords 

The first chords we learned showed fingering patterns that can be used as Movable Chords that can be played up the neck, where most of us have a lot of unused real estate.
