The A part or first part of 12th St. Rag can be rhythmically divided into two patterns. Each are demonstrated in the video. Once the patterns become obvious the tune is easy to play and a spectacular showpiece.
The PDFs of the tune are written out in easy to read and follow chord block diagrams. The PDFs make the song look long but don’t let that slow you down. Each note is diagramed for clarity. If you print the pages out there will be plenty of room to make notes.
This tune works great at quick tempos. Play it as fast as you can!
