Needs just a bit of tweaking in the abc, I think…

Pig Ankle Rag, X:2

I am learning this setting of the rag from Connie Eppich in New Hampshire for a set with Ragtime Annie.
The "B" part has a nice run down to the open D string - you could do a unison with the pinkie on the G string.

Re: Pig Ankle Rag

Have played this tune in many sessions in Black Earth, Wisconsin.
One of my faves—play it really fast….

Re: Pig Ankle Rag

Yes, good fun tune to play: I picked it up at Whitby Folk Week and few years back, in the Big Band workshop: the version we were given corresponds much more closely to X1 than X2. (and though it’s not written as such, we played it "swung".)
