This sounds like a really fundamental progression on any instrument.

I'm getting |F|F+|Ddim|F7|, but I don't think that's right. This video should start at the correct time.

Just raise the 5th & the 3rd of a Major Triad a half step three times so as to end on a Dominant Seventh.

I can't believe it but someone has transcribed it.

They only give a taste for free, but it has the intro.

I like the keyboard transcription better, which shows the actual movement in the bass as heard in the piano roll.

Oh, I clicked on your link and now I see that you found to the same thing and transcribed for guitar, moving the voices around.  The bass movement matters as it defines the tonality better, and it should be playable if transposed up to F.

Yeah, I'm working on how to simulate the fast intro part, but I just wanted that four chord walk-up. What I found give the idea at least, and is playable on the guitar with the A note in the base.

Oh, yeah, this is a cool ragtime tune for banjo!

I once worked up my own version 30+ years ago...

I can’t remember much of it now except that 7th fret change from A+ to D...

I like your taste in music, by the way. If you're taking suggestions for guitar arrangements, I have been meaning to arrange Duke Ellington's Black Beauty for years but haven't found the time. Guy Van Duser did an arrangement of Black Beauty and I asked him whether he had a chart. The answer was that he arranged it by ear and didn't write it down.
