A friend of mine has a haunt with an old time Saloon room in it.

There will be a haunted piano which will have a skeleton playing it. Actually just sitting at it while the keys play themselves.

I am trying to help him with appropriate music for the piano.

We will have a speaker in the piano playing the tunes.

I need some "honky-tonk" saloon type piano songs. Kind of rag-time, but I really need it to be played on a piano that is slightly out of tune, giving it that un-cared for barroom sound.

I can find plenty of music that would be right, if it had that sound. Maybe there is some software out there that can create off key harmonics that might do the trick if I processed the song.

Any ideas?

Worked perfect!!

Thank you.

Sure, Here's the file.

OffKeyPiano.mp3

I will be making several more. I actually got the audio for this one off youtube. I have several other ragtime "HonkyTonk" tunes that I will do the same thing with for variety.

Sorry, I didn't save the original untouched version, and couldn't find it on youtube again.

But It can easily be done with any tune. For my purposes, I wanted just piano and something that might be played in an old saloon. That tune fit the bill.
