Description

Ragtime music, traditionally played primarily on the piano, is a genre which enjoyed popularity in the early 20th century. It is characterised by a syncopated, or “ragged” rhythm in the melody, played over a steady bassline. Ragtime was preceded by its close relative, the cakewalk ­ – a similarly syncopated dance.

This collection presents five such pieces arranged for ukulele and bass ­ some well-known, and some less so. The ukulele and bass parts are shown on opposite pages of each double­ page spread of this collection, allowing the musicians to play from the same music stand, and for the student to easily cross­-reference the two parts.
