I've always loved this, and only thought I'd be listening to the old piano roll versions. But I found these young guys that I've loved hearing. ... FBA30E73B9
This one is from old piano roll.
Fur Elise played in Ragtime.

This one is two-piano Improvised Chopsticks.

The two young guys are awsome! I love this whole tune, and what they've done with it. I like the way this piano music sounds just like an old cowboy saloon.

This is a man( Tom Brier) playing Maple leaf Rag. I think I am offically a fan of his. he plays some things unhumanly fast, but it still keeps to the true rhythm of ragtime. He played it in three different majors. A, G, and B. he got a little messed up on B, but played it a little slower, but still with the true sound of the song.

Then he was asked to play some video game themes. I don't play video games, so I've never heard Super Mario before, but listening to him, it's hard to beleive it was really a game tune. he goes fast, then slow, and then speeds up at one point to like hyper mode, but always within this ragtime rythym.

Then there's one called Nyan Cat

I saw one video explainging ragtime, and couldn't beleive it whe they said Doctors used to be worried when this first started being played. They thought people were going to go crazy from it. This isn't a new thing for me to be interested in this. I always have liked it. It's just that I've been looking it up more now.

I'd like to find some footage of Joshua Rifkin playing ragtime from the 60s or early 70s. So far this is the best I've come up with (not sure when it dates from):

Hi Dayna
a delayed response. You might find some interesting stuff on Document Records. They mainly concentrate on pre-war blues and gospel, but have released CDs covering lots of early recordings of associated genres, and they're great value!.
Happy hunting

Thanks. I was really mostly interested in showing the guy I put links for I guess. Tom Brier. I'd hoped people would see what a talented guy is is.
