So, having created what is in effect a 'technical' demo of the song's structure there's very little for the original recording files to do except take up storage space.
Or, perhaps have a bit of a laugh with them.
I have in my mind an Edwardian officer, red tunic, gold braid, probably holding his pith hemet, HUGE moustache, I probably remember the image from a biscuit tin at my Granny's house.
Or the label of a bottle of Camp coffee (a vile syrup made from tarmac), but I think the chaps on the bottle wore kilts...

Sorry, got a bit wistful.
The initial recording of the vocal/uke track will be used as a 'guide track' to hang the subsequent recordings on.
First new recording: baritone uke hitting the off beats.
Second new recording: Concert uke strummed lightly
Third new recording: Resonator uke chord pattern filled out with passing chords.
Forth new recording: Vocal sung in a very nearly right vocal style.
Fifth new recording: Chorus backing vocal
