As the player in question, thanks!

Easy.  Assuming the uke is tuned to soprano C (GCEA), transpose the E 
to G for a Gsus2 chord (hold down the third string at the second fret 
and the second string at the third fret--see 
http://www.sheep-entertainment.nl/ukulele/) and just move that up and 
down the neck.  It's actually really well suited to uke.

"Harmonica."  And he worked in bits of the theme from 2001!
