Frog Legs Rag was Scott's first published piece, a delightful affair in a "classic" AABBACCDD form in the major flatted keys of A and D. The rag is very workmanlike getting straight down to brass tacks without any frills in the form of an introduction. After a bright opening with virtuosic runs for the descant the composition settles down to the B strain somewhat reminiscent of Scott Joplin's famous Maple Leaf Rag (1899). The ACC strains are interspersed with a 4-bar passage leading into the quieter C strain which the 1st tenor will especially enjoy whereby he or she has all the running. The D strain rounds the whole thing off with a pleasing dialogue between the 1st and 2nd voices. The cover of the original sheet music depicts two four-fingered flipper-holding frolicsome frogs out-staring each other whilst squatting on a lily pad against the background of an enormous sunrise (or sunset -take your pick) amongst bull-rushes in a tropical swamp.
Frog Legs Rag was published by Stark Music Co, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 90 crotchets/min. is suggested.
