Is this the song of a Summer Tanager?

There are at least three songs of WEVI. The first possible tanager song sounds reasonable for Summer, but the second sounds more like Scarlet. Anyone else?

I did hear the White-eyed Vireo.  I uploaded this to the BirdNet app and it gave me a 90% chance this was a Summer Tanager.   I did see a Summer Tanager that day.  I've not learned their song well enough to ID by that alone, however.

I'm not as good with Tanagers as I am with warblers so hopefully someone else can weigh in, but I'd learn Scarlet- I don't think Summer can have well-spaced syllables like the second song, though a few longer more complex syllables seems within the range of variation of Scarlet. But that's assuming they are the same bird.
