    "RagTag Rag"

    Y'all All,

    This is my "RagTag Rag" in two different flavors:

    Piano

    Synth

    Nice touch with the accordion in the piano
    version, Larry.

    But in this case, I definitely prefer the
    synthesizer version... sounds like it was
    just made for it -- much more buoyancy
    to it!

    My best,

    Larry:
    Good tempo. Many times "rags" are taken too fast. I'd like to hear some stronger syncopation melodically:ie-- 16th 8th 16th.
    I hate to go against David but I prefer the piano version, sounds more authentic to me. Top notch, as usual.

    I do utilize the syncopation you mention in most of my rags.

    Thanks for the good words, my friend.

    Hi Larry,

    My turn to chime in with my vote .. and, I hesitate to go against Steve (my big band hero) but I agree with David. The synth really lends a "fantasy" aura to this. And, it goes without saying (but I'll say it anyway), another creative and cleverly conceived piece. Great job, Larry!

    I didn't know that you were a ragtime fan, Mr. Danny.

    Many thanks for listening and commenting.
