Pig Ankle Rag

  1. sgarrity
    This is a fun one to play with lots of room to goof around (and make mistakes!). As Barbara has pointed out I don't have much of a poker face which makes some of these videos even more entertaining! If you can't laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at??

    Thanks for all the kinds words. These kind of tunes just fit the resonator. Lots of fun learning them too!

    As for the next poker game......I don't play for a reason! LOL When I'm in Vegas I'm a Blackjack fan!

    Great picking Shaun.
    Barbara; there is an arrangement which is much nearer to what Shaun is playing at www.petecooper.com.

    Great tune by both you guys. Steve Parker's Ragtime for Fiddle and Mandolin also includes Pig Ankles Rag, a 5 part version composed by Mamie Williams. Just read in General Discussions forum that Mr. Parker recently passed away.

    Here is a great instructional video by Don Julin. This addressed the opening notes, I was having trouble getting them right. I don't think any of the notation had it notated this way, but to my ear, it sure is how it should be.
