Thread Name: Draft Dodger Rag: ragtime or not?
Subject: RE: Draft Dodger Rag: ragtime or not?
It is not ragtime, which is a particular kind of syncopated rhythm made remowned by Joplin, but it is a rag, which is a much more general term meaning a song with a certain kind of sloppy spirit behind it.
