Maybe that's the problem! No lunch!

I've been playing this for several years. I first heard rags through the Western swing/old-time traditions, so they're not played straight in my recollection. I found this in a fiddle/lead sheet book, so I had to make up my own bass, which took several months. Since most of the rags I had played were Joplin, my bass has Joplin influences. Later I downloaded the original Botsford Black and White from the Lester Levy Collection. This version bears a family resemblance to that one smile , and I like my bass better laugh .

I will have to admit this is the first time I've been disappointed in my recital submission, but there's just been too much going on at work. Oh well, as we say laugh

I am really looking forward to the other rags submitted for this recital - ragtime forever! </td></tr></tbody></table>

I have not revisited the score in quite some time; anything missed (apart from standard amateur artifacts/mistakes), critical feedback welcomed.

I hope you enjoy this piece. It has long, long been one of my favorites. I share it as a gift of love through song as my own meager contribution to Recital #11. </td></tr></tbody></table>

A few errors have slipped in to this recording and the timing is off in several places, but on the whole I'm quite pleased as I managed to record it in a single take (the 3rd attempt, due to Audacity crashing) and I only finished learning it a short while ago. With a little more time I'm sure I can polish it up to more of a performance standard, but this will have to do for this recital.

For lunch, I had a pasty. </td></tr></tbody></table>

My version is a bit short. I've tried many variations but nothing really strikes me like just sticking to the main theme and that is a fairly brief theme. However with the huge amount of wonderful music we get in these recitals, I'm not worried about this being a bit short. </td></tr></tbody></table>

I just recently memorized the notes

recital deadline, this recording contains a few wrong notes and a couple places
where I had to stop myself & start over. It is what it is...my playing with flaws & all.
For better or for worse, it has always been my habit to try to learn to play pieces that are more technically advanced than my capabilities. An unconventional approach, for sure. </td></tr></tbody></table>

It takes me back to the birth of my long awaited son, whom we seemed to wait our whole lives for. He is the one who makes us a family. </td></tr></tbody></table>
