Corn Shucks Rag is a lively and jolly piece in AABBACC form with a 4-bar introduction and a contagious 8-bar interlude between the C strains. It has been recorded as recently as 1994 by Tom Brier on the Stomp Off Records label (CD-1274). This adaptation for recorder is characterised by the melodies being shared by the treble and 1st tenor voices, the treble also has an unusual pleasure by alternating to descant for the C-strains. The rhythm section is by no means neglected and all voices have their share in limelight.
In making this recorder adaptation, the editor gratefully acknowledges Jim Hertweck, collector of ragtime music in Bend, Oregon, for generously providing access to his materials.
Corn Shucks Rag was published by J.W. Jenkins' Sons Music Co., Kansas City, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
