Wish i was Steve, but no its an ordinary acoustic, i was really close to the laptop because of the laptop's microphone, might have gave it an electricity type sound, And i keep forgetting the right bow hold so somtimes i put to much pressure on. i also played close to the bridge

Hi, Donovan. Very good playing and thank you for posting.

Thank you for introducing the song. It's a beautiful and lovely tune. Will add it into my learning list.

I just looked at the sheet music for this song and noticed the timing goes from 4/4 to 2/4 to 3/4 to 2/4 to 3/4, how do you play this?

Well done, and playing it by ear (I'm jealous still working on improving that aspect of my playing).  One of my favorite musicals, enjoyed listening.
