Tutorial For Creating Chord Melodies For Baritone Ukelele

I'm learning to play a baritone ukelele. I am having difficulty finding instructions/tutorials/courses/books to learn how to create chord melody music. Information is available for the ukeleles tuned to the GCEA strings, but not for the baritone ukes using the DGBE tuning.

Generally for chord melodies the same rules apply; the highest note or the last one heard is what the brain will interpret as the melody note. You might need to learn different variations of the same chord to get the desired melody note, so the best advice I can give is play around a little and trust your ear. For some more information here are some videos by James Hill.
