About "The Entertainer":
"The Entertainer" is not only the most famous song written by an American ragtime composer, Scott Joplin (1867 - 1917) among all of his compositions but also among all the ragtime music of all times. It also appears in a famous western movie, "The Sting" which Robert Redford and Paul Newman acted in.
Tips for playing Level 5 "The Entertainer":
This level of arrangement was created to accommodate players with smaller hands who can't comfortably reach octaves continuously. It's not much different from the original form. The only difference is that the most octave notes and tied notes are removed so that you don't have to keep stretching your fingers. Please refer to our free complete audio sample to get an idea. The key is still in the original key of C major. And it sounds very close to the original.
