Ukulele Players: How am I supposed to position my fingers?

I'm a beginner and can't find any videos explaining this. I find it hard placing 2 fingers on the same fret, and also placing it on the G string since its the farthest away from my fingers. If you have a video please put the link or leave advice!

I teach ukulele, guitar, mandolin, dulcimer and zither in my private studio here in Louisville, KY and at Bellarmine University.
I understand about fingers not reaching strings on the fret board.
Take your left hand and curl your wrist up to the fretboard. When you look down at your wrist you should see your wrist creased and have like a c shape or cupped shape around the uke's neck. Your thumb should be in the middle of the neck or closest to the the edge of the neck near the first string.
Stand your finngers up on the tips, do not lay your fingers down or smash fingers down on the strings. You lose finger flexibility. Also do not lean on your left elbow by putting it on your knee. Leaning on your knee with your elbow and I have seen many, many student's do this, stops the movement of your arm.
A good exercise to strengthen your fingers is: stand beside your bed with your uke over the bed and taking your index finger of your left hand, bar it across all the strings of the first fret and your thumb in the the middle of the neck, when you look down it should look like a clothes pin pinching your uke's neck and dangle the uke there. This will strengthen your fingers. If you drop the uke it falls on the bed.
Now: your index finger is #1 and should try to stay in the first fret.
your second finger is of course #2 and should try to stay in the second fret.
your third finger the ring finger is #3 stays in the thrid fret.
your fourth finger the pinky is #4 stays between the fourth and fifth fret. This works when you are playing the lead called the melody notes.
When you play chords you have to move your fingers to adjust to make the chord. I wish I knew what chord you were making so I could tell you the Finger Mapping (registered Trade Mark by MaryLou Stout Dempler) to make the chord quickly and easily.
I have written 2 uke booklets for Lanikai Ukuleles that are given with each uke purchase all over the world. The booklets have chord diagrams (with finger positions for the chords) and strum patterns that will have you playing the ukulele in less than 2 minutes without reading music. If you want a FREE booklet just email me at musiclou42@msn.com
You asked for other advice, I think this information could help you also.
I require all my students to purchase the beginner Lanikai Soprano Ukes because they are the most reasonably priced ukes, come professionally set up for easy playability (Is your ukulele set up? The strings might be raised to high from the frtboard making it hard to press the strings down), have professional strings and the have the best sound compared to other ukes. Lanikai also has a wonderful ukulele tuner. You can purchase a Lanikai beginner uke for $50.00.
For my birthday 12 years ago my husband had a $2000.00 ukulele handmade in Hawaii for my present. I have been asked to represent several different ukulele companies. Lanikai is the only ukulele that is priced right and has the true sound of a ukulele. The highest priced Lanikai Ukes sound just like my $2000.00 but are only a few hundred dollars. Even the beginner ukes sound beautiful and have perfect pitch, for just $50.00, you can't lose.
Also if you learn to play the sorpano ( the smallest and hightest pitch) uke, you can also play the concert uke ( a little bigger), the tenor uke ( the biggest uke for the same tunings of AECG) and best of all YOU CAN PLAY THE BANJO UKE. All of the fret boards are the exact same as along as the tunings are AECG so you can play 4 instruments with different sounds all for learning the one instrument. There is also a Baritone uke which is the biggest uke, the daddy size of all the ukes which is tuned EBGD just like a guitar because it really is the first four strings of the guitar.
I have also written 5 Easy Ukulele Method Books that are published by Mel Bay. Check out the pages of the books at www.melbay.com. This method also teaches you how to play the ukulele in just minutes without reading music.
If you want to hear my cds that I only record using 8 different ukuleles for a huge uke, sound just go to www.cdbaby.com
I am a teacher so if I can answer anymore of your questions just email me and ask.
