Day 34: “Ragamuffins” (Original Music)

Last weekend I got the idea to write an honest-to-goodness ragtime piece modeled after Scott Joplin’s rags. I tried for as accurate an emulation as I could while still hopefully being original. To me, this was as much as historical “study,” based on my experience of playing rags, as it was an original composition. I certainly had fun, and wanted to add strings to practice with my “digital orchestra.” I also ended up adding tuba to double the bass notes, which I quite like.
