My wife and I are fostering a mother cat and her four one-week-old kittens for the local animal shelter. They are unbearably adorable (although at this stage they are what my wife refers to as "cat grubs"!), and we've been spending a lot of time looking at them, and loving on the mother cat, who is very sweet.
I've also been spending a lot of time watching heftone's videos on Youtube and wishing I could play half as well. So this morning, I started messing around with a chord progression that (to me, anyway) sounded kind of Rag-timey. It changed a few times throughout the day, but I'm fairly pleased with the final product (apart from my sloppy playing!).
