Sure Fire Rag is a fine rag with syncopation and acciaccatura aplenty even spreading sometimes among all three melody voices, something that requires precise tonguing and exquisite ensemble skills. Its form is AABBACB and it is written in the key of F-major. With all the top notes to be played, especially by the 1st voice, one has to be right on target to perform this piece successfully just as the Indian brave shown on the front cover of the original sheet music most certainly is.
Sure Fire Rag was published by Victor Kremer Co., Chicago, Illinois, USA.
A tempo of 90 crotchets/min. is suggested.
