About "arranged" or transcribed versions of the Classics interspersing Boogie Woogie pieces in the Older Beginner, Accelerated, Attenuated Piano Adventures Method Book: "When you take the Op. 18, Eb Major Chopin Waltz, p. 49 (Faber Older Beginner) and butcher its quarters, it plays like a La-ti-dah, Skip to My Lou, partner-stealing dance from Americas frontier period."
I play "original" favorites from Anna Magdalena Bach's Notebook though two were Anonymously written, rather than indulge the watered down remakes.
