Very nice even playing, I enjoyed listening to it. I've heard those pieces at various tempo's (tempi?), yours sounds fine to me.

Is that your arrangement?
How long have you been playing?

Good work! Those aren't easy chords to play by ear. Love the reharmonizations at the end!

I think you play phenomonally well for someone playing less than a year. Do you have prior training on any other instrument, self-taught or not?

i like the faster tempo - maybe since there are no vocals, its better faster.......
sounds a little rag time influenced - cool!
