I think the site may require Crescendo...not sure...but it really is worth it.

I think you're right on the "Kitten on the Keys." I think I played that one in my youth...also, Golliwogs Cakewalk. My piano teacher loved ragtime piano and I was exposed to several. I found that page looking for Mapleleaf Rag (Scott Joplin).

Another question...maybe Pavane knows this.

I've noticed that some midi sequences sound like a guitarist made them...some a pianist...and some are more orchestrated. I think like a pianist...my "arrangements" are very piano-like. I really like Milton Okun's arrangements. Masato told me he also did some for Peter, Paul and Mary. (Barry Taylor said he does his by hand, but they sould like guitar accompaniments.) Can anyone explain these differences? How can I learn "orchestration"?
