Help me unleash the ukulele player within! Looking for online tips and/or details from MeFi uke-players as to how they went about learning to play the instrument.

I just bought my first ukulele and would like a little help with a plan of attack when it comes to getting to grips with it. I've found a lot of information at sites such as ukulelehunt
but, as much fun as I have been having playing along to songs by Beirut, I feel as if I should be looking to learn to play in a more methodical way. Does anybody out there have any suggestions regarding online tutorials or similar things?
I am already a rudimentary guitar player so I know my way around tabs and so on, so I don't want anything too basic, but I feel like I should learn a little about technique in order to get the most out of my uke.
On the other hand, perhaps I am wrong. Perhaps you mastered the uke by picking it up and blasting through a load of tabs for Metallica songs on it. If so, please assure me that this is the best way to go about things.
