The Entertainer by Scott Joplin

I promised to post videos this year of my piano adventures, so here's me following through.

This is an oldie but a goodie, a popular ragtime piece from the 1910s that became widely-known after it was used as the theme song for the blockbuster 1973 movie "The Sting."

The song is in 4 sections and I learned the first one back in the day when I was in high school, but never went beyond that.

There are a few minor mistakes in this performance, but I think it gets a solid B+, which means it's good enough to post. Pardon the tiny little sliver of fat belly you can see on the lower right by my phone holster.
