Piano ragtime, with a modern beat.


Let me know if you think it is repetitive or boring, or needs work.

Tighten it up a bit ... add a modulation or two. Scrap the vocal around minute 1 .... and the odd extraneous noises around 2.25. I like the energy and the beat and in fact was jiving around a bit at my computer. Check out Joplin for the best ragtimes ever. And even ragtime can feature melodies which stick in the ear. For me the measure of a great piece of music, classical, pop or otherwise is if it can produce an "earworm". When I'm composing and hours later one of the melodies is rotating around in my head ... then I know I've got a "keeper". grin
