Hello,

I am submitting a link of our eGreeting card for this year. I recorded an arrangement of “O Come, O Come, Immanuel” on one of my baritone ukuleles and put it together with some photos we have taken recently. The uke is a Pono Spruce/Rosewood with a MISI pickup purchased used here on the marketplace. It is tuned reentrant (dGBE) with Martin strings.

I hope you enjoy it and Seasons Greetings!

There is a thread of haunting sweetness running throughout the tune that is really quite lovely to listen to. Thank you, Duane; beautifully done. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Thanks, Steve. Photos are smartphone pics edited in Snapseed and the video was made with Openshot (both great, free editors). Snapseed is for Android or IOS and Openshot is a Windows/Mac/Linux open source app.

Merry Christmas!

Thanks, Mike. Both of my Ponos as well as my Mainland have great tone and I'm learning to develop my own sound as well.

Thanks for the kind words. Dizzy Gillespie said he spent most of his life learning which notes not to play. My goal is always to enhance the melody and display the beauty of the song.
