The most well-known piece by Scott Joplin and one of the most played piano pieces ever. Fabulously fun to play. Required quite a lot of work for me to get into the right "mood and swing". Chose a rather moderate tempo (around 104 BPM) but this is a fast rag and should not be played much slower than this IMHO.
