    Arrow " Ronald Raggin' "

    Ragtime Lovers,

    Here is my "Ronald Raggin' ".

    I achieved the out-of-tune, honky-tonk piano sound by using two instances of the Garritan Jazz And Big Band Steinway piano and detuning and delaying one just a tad.

    Regards,

    Larry

    That trick you did with the piano is perfect Larry.

    I wish my hands worked that good again.

    What a neat technique! The piano sound reminds me a bit of an old piano we had at our family's summer cottage years ago although your piano is more musical in its "out-of-tune-ness".

    I really enjoyed this fun piece.

    A nice ragg. I liked the counterpoint.

    It almost wanted to break out into Bach but it stayed a ragg.

    That's a pretty authentic sounding honky-tonk piano effect.

    A fitting tribute and, as ever with your rags, well done,
    my friend. I think RR would have enjoyed this.

    Love that honky-tonk sound you get!

    All the best,

    I must confess that it's not a tribute to Mr. Reagan, even though I admired him. The title is just one of my puns.

    Thanks for listening, Mr. David.

    My Best,

    Well. . . Mr. Larry. . . experimenting with the sounds and wonders of the software programs and sound libraries, I see! What a WONDERFUL way to get that "Honky-Tonk-Ragtime" feel! Very cool!

    Its seems that you take the whole concept of the "traditional" ragtime style to a whole new "intelligent" and well thought-out level, Mr. Larry! It may gots that Ragtime sounds, but it also gots that expert contrapuntal-like compositional venture that you create in your music! And you know that I enjoys those compositional ventures that you cleverly creates.

    What a great "good morning to you" sound to hear on this cold, wintery Sunday morning.

    Warm regards to you, Mr. Larry. . . as you enjoy that sunny, warm Texas weather! LOL!
