Thread Name: Ragtime Guitar
Subject: RE: Ragtime Guitar
Jeez Michael, you use my name to get me in trouble with Easy Rider, and then DON'T use it when you're being complimentary!!

Micca. I've seen Mike play Grossman's arrangement of "Dallas Rag", and you're right. It's very difficult. Don't let that throw you though. There are very few folks capable of playing something that difficult ...well. Mike does. But... a slightly simplified version might be well within your grasp and sure as heck is still ragtime. Do you have any friends you can play with? Split the tunes into 2 parts with one person taking melody and the other doing the bass. It'll sound just as good and take about one tenth the time to learn.
