Lowdown Rag         key C

Here is a tune which came together while I was practising some ragtime licks on the bottom two strings of the mandolin - hence the title Lowdown Rag.

The overall feel is similar to such tunes as Dill Pickle Rag, Pig Ankle Rag and the Dillards' Jody's Tune. There's a direct crib from Beaumont Rag in the second part. Play at medium pace with bounce/swing or speed up and smooth it out. Have fun!

This is another arrangement in TablEdit. If you haven't already got TablEdit on your computer, you can download and install the free TablEdit Viewer program. This will play back the TablEdit file of Lowdown Rag through your PC or Mac.
