(Version 2, drums removed by popular demand, minor embellishments added.) This little ragtime number began life as just a snippet, written as background music for a home movie last year. But recently, when Caroline (Caro2ine, to be specific) was going through her post-Macjammer-party depression, I decided to flesh this out into a much longer song, and dedicate it to her bear, who also seemed to have lost much of his bounce lately. So it has been renamed from its original "Lickety Split Rag" to "Caroline's Bear Rag". I also borrowed her bouncing bear icon out of the chat window, and taught him to play piano. For the hard core ragtime buffs, I know this is not quite syncopated enough to be true ragtime, but hopefully its fun and bouncy and makes you smile anyway. I had a lot of fun playing with the dynamics to make this feel animated and alive. Please leave me a comment and critique this, let me know what you think about the music, style, mood, technique. Also, Caroline's friend Lee took my piano sheet music, practiced, and played this for REAL, here: http://www.macjams.com/song/17923.
