Song for my wonderful grandfather who died when I was in the 6th grade.Photo is Longmont Colorado where he ran a small insurance company his whole life.He had a great sense of humor so I tried to reflect that in the song.

Really fine
Nice gentle swing to this very enjoyable song. You excellent playing creates a great treatment of a rag...

There's a spirit present in this song. I'm sure your grandfather loves your gift to him - this tribute - and is rightly proud of you.

Thanks for posting.

sweet warm confidence
Not strutting, but just smiling friendly confidence, that is what this says to me. I like rags played at a reasonable pace, this one feels very natural. Sweet piece of music, and very relaxed-sounding playing (i.e. your talent allows you to make this sound easy ;-) Great work! Your grandfather is proudly toasting you with an iced tea on an infinite front porch, I bet.
ttfn,
Drakonis

I think
it's pretty cool that people here are so open-minded about musical styles.There are a lot of talented people doing different things but everybody checks out each other's music regardless of style.
Thanks for your comments!

I hope you are
joking about the "hack" thing.The music you are putting together is way beyond my production skills,and if you ever heard me sing...it's like Leo Kottke said on one of his albums- goose farts on a muggy day.

It was Ejh who mentioned something about your sense of timing somewhere, and I've learned to always trust Ejh and he was right again.

for your comments.You are a master of this style of playing...glad you checked out my song.As I mentioned to Ed it's not a real rag but it has that feel so I'll call it a rag anyway.

ziti said 3722 days ago (September 12th, 2007)
hehehehe
got me right from the git go....

the rag time style in itself is aural prozac, rendering depression a thing of the past.

the trick to rag time time is to play it s l o w l y (ask cori!), and this tempo is perfection...as is the playing and composition. I am truly awed by this my friend, and I'm not so sure we should meet because i might be a bit gooogly...

truly great guitar music

deepest bows

Ed Hannifin said 3722 days ago (September 12th, 2007)
This song has great spirit, Mark...
Cori/Johannes will tell you that rags are not my favorite musical form, and yet sometimes when they're done with flair and spirit and if they're done with a feel for the tune and not at a breakneck, look-ma-no-hands pace, they make for wonderful music...

I continue to love your tone, pacing and phrasing...

I'm also tickled that so many MacJammers really get it about what a fine player you are...

Great heart in this one, too, Mark...Tune after tune, something of you comes through...

If i could
play with no hands that would be really cool!I seem to remember that you are not a big ragtime fan-this tune isn't a real rag,it's more of a 30's jazz tune.Glad you like it anyway.
I must also thank you again for constantly bugging me to join macjams.I've been inspired to actually write some music which I have rarely done in the past.(I have done quite a bit of arranging though.)Actually I am little amazed that people are paying attention.Having you announce my arrival in the forum didn't hurt!

Excellent!
Your best production yet Mark, by far imho. It goes without saying that your playing will be technically perfect, but this has so much heart in it as well ..... and the hunour certainly shines through.
This is just a seriously good, very well recorded, beautiful tune - congratulations!

My feet are bouncing to the beat as I write. Tap tap tapping. Humor and a good beat are what its all about. Good clean guitar picking with no funny business.
