I haven't actually played this song very much, but I felt like something "clicked" for me the other day regarding using tempo and volume to add musicality to the song, so I was excited to record even if it's not very polished yet. Another recording on my new Pono Master Series, which will be included in a review I think I'll be posting today as well.

The chair is new used from the mother in law, who I think got it from her mother-in-law. We went out and got the tree together yesterday too. I originally intended to sit in the chair for this recording, but Tigre is king and I dare not move him from his throne. He is also my ultimate critic. I can tell it's at least pretty good when he hangs around.

Uke: Pono Master Series Spruce and Rosewood tenor
Strings: Uke logic Low G, soft tension
Song: Celine Dion - My Heart Will Go On
Arr.: Yuji Nakajima from Ukulele Time

Raw recording with Shure SM57 and cloudlifter. I raised the gain on the pre-amp this time, so it sounds a lot nicer and less noise this time since it wasn't digitally added gain I think? Figuring these things out as I go
