comment The use of the root note in a scale
I have noticed that a melody ends on the root note even more commonly than starting on the root note. I guess this is to achieve the feeling of "coming home" when the melody ends.

comment Understanding the elements of harmony in “honky-tonk” or ragtime style piano
One thing I think is cool regarding honky tonk or ragtime is that I think of a setting where the piano is played at some non-fancy bar or diner as background music where the piano is slightly off-tune. This is something that makes it a bit charming, and adds to the "honky tonk feeling".
