    Along with Te Tama Maohi, this is another single mic recording of a ukulele, female voice and guitar as a live take. This took a few takes, and still not that happy with it overall as it lacks smoothness and also some difficulty balancing the sound levels. Though given that it's a live take and I am increasing or decreasing the guitar volume in the mix by moving from one chair to another, it's not bad.

    Overall, Bea is less comfortable with this song, and I think it shows in the feel. Actually, this song is apparently (I just recently learned) supposed to go a bit faster, so I think a retake is in order with drums and also full picking (right now it's a mix of fingerpicking and strumming, which I think impedes the overall feel/groove and also creates volume issues as noted).

    Te Tama Maohi is more like "you are a child of the land, you are the foundation of life" and talks about nature, missing each other and wishing happiness to someone. I'm sure I've butchered that somehow so will get Bea to make that clearer :)

    Again, players are Bea for ukulele and vocals, and me on acoustic guitar. Only one edit, during the caesura, but hopefully pretty clean. Will be better next time ...
