Ragtime Annie

Ragtime Annie. Key of D. Three parts. Driving fast.

Key of D. Two or three parts. The optional third part is in key of G. (When we include the third part, we end on the second part so that it feels like a D tune.) The first part uses bow rocking on the fiddle's A and D strings. The second part is asymmetrical; it is a little different the second time through. The third part is very simple and is comparable to Little Brown Jug.
