A happy, carefree rag with double thirds in RH against a traditional stride bass.
This Late Intermediate, Grade 4/5 rag is written in traditional ragtime style to help students gain confidence with the difficult "stride" bass technique. The bass needs to remain steady and even for the right hand syncopation to be effective.
This rag is the 4th in a series of 6 rags written as an homage to the great Scott Joplin. All 6 rags have little or no RH double octave work, making them more accessible for Intermediate Level students. The given fingering is a suggested one only, it works well but can be altered to suit the performer.
