Thread Name: What makes a tune a Rag?
Subject: RE: What makes a tune a Rag?
The Mississippi Rag, 1897, after looking at the sheet music, originally seems to have been in piano arrangement, with arrangements for mandolin, banjo and guitar, and other combinations up to small orchestra and large orchestra, prices $0.50 to $1.00.
An easily readable copy is at American Memory (also at Levy): Mississippi Rag
