About 10 years ago I wrote two rags. I listened to them last night and thought that it sounded like they were probably pretty easy to write and figured I could probably write more without too much effort. So that’s what I just did.
Those earlier two were sort of exuberantly goofy; this one I tried to steer in the same direction but I guess I wasn’t feeling it; it came out fairly conservative. Except for a couple of jokes with phrase length and the obvious overdose of dissonance, this really is just your standard-issue rag.
Very unedited score. I’ll replace this with a revised and/or edited version if I ever revise and/or edit it.
Edit later that day: Man, this is a really annoying piece.
