Mensagem: 

   I wonder if any of you happen to know the difference between ukelele and cavaquinho. Should both (If both) aren't the same thing, what would be the equivalent word for cavaquinho?  (Forget about equivalents.  Call a cavaquinho a cavaquinho.  I see no harm in saying that it similar to the ukulele, it has steel strings, etc.)

   By the way, Have I used the word "should" meaning 'if" correctly?

(My guess is that somewhere you read "Should you go to the store" is more or less the equivalent of saying "If you go to the store."  In most contexts, it is.  However, that doesn't mean that "should" can always be used as an alternative to "if".)
