    Three of my original ragtime tunes...

    Here are three of my original, ricky-ticky ragtime pieces. I applied some digital processing to the piano to give the overall effect of a 1920s tinny, out-of-tune, beat-up, beer-stained, full-of-bullet-holes honky-tonk instrument:

    "Rocky Top Rag"

    Hi Larry,

    I enjoyed your rags. Back when times were much simpler and the country was in late adolescence.

    I won't say anymore about that.

    Great, Larry.

    A good smile. Music can be so disarming and charming, even the simplest of notes. I have a slight preference for the first one. I don't know why.

    Larry, such a sonic adventure... like a musical picture. Well actually I'm not neutral because I love ragtime... so I'm in the opposite mood of Max, the first is nice but it's not RAG enough...

    My "Rugrat..." and "Rocky..." tempos are too fast. They are much faster than the standard ragtime tempo.

    Thanks for your comments, Mister Fabio.

    A good day to you!

    "Never play ragtime too fast." (Quote: Scott Joplin)

    ...yes but... I've been corrupted by crazy performances of mapple leaf rag by K.Emerson... Down in the 70s LOL

    maybe that's the reason.

    I spend a considerable amount of my boyhood on the Atlantic City boardwalk. I remember all the ragtime we were exposed to there. I hear a lot of rag today, but very little of it sounds like those wonderful summers. Yours, however, hit the spot. Nicely out of tune and not too fast.

    Thanks for the memories.
