Honky-tonk piano music is a style of piano playing that originated in the southern United States in the early 20th century. It is characterized by a lively, upbeat rhythm and a distinctive use of the piano's lower register. The genre is closely associated with country music and is often played in bars and dance halls. Honky-tonk piano players often use a "walking bass" technique, in which the left hand plays a repetitive pattern of notes while the right hand improvises melodies and fills. The genre reached its peak of popularity in the 1940s and 1950s, and has since influenced many other styles of music.
