A Real Slow Drag is the beautiful, haunting finale to Treemonisha. Its directions as given by Joplin are as follows:
1. The Slow Drag must begin on the first beat of each measure.
2. When moving forward, drag the left foot; when moving backward, drag the right foot.
3. When moving sideways to right, drag left foot; when moving sideways to left, drag right foot.
4. When prancing, your steps must come on each beat of the measure.
5. When marching and when sliding, your steps must come on the first and third beat of each measure.
6. Hop and skip on second beat of measure. Double the schottische step to fit the slow music.
A Real Slow Drag was published by Scott Joplin Music Pub. Co, New York, USA. It was revised as a separate item in 1913.
A tempo of 100 crotchets/min. is mandated by the composer.
