Length: approx. 3 mins. Sounds best if the 2nd tenor is doubled.
Hoosier Rag is a fine free-flowing rag which others have compared with Scott Joplin's Weeping Willow (1903). Its form is AABACCB with a 4-bar introduction. The 1st tenor will especially enjoy this work having the melody line from bar 1 to the final bar 84. Being an all bass/tenor affair, care has to be taken that the rhythm section should restrain from overemphasising its "umpah-umpahs".
Miss Niebergall dedicated this composition to a certain J.A. Giehl.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
Hoosier Rag was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
There is also a tenor solo version of this item.
