    Default Ragtime / old time instruction book

    I am looking for suggestions for a good instruction book to learn some oldtime / ragtime songs Tab or notation is fine, thanks!

    I recently bought the book Al posted the link to. It's great, and the customer service is top notch as well.
    Dear sir, I am terribly sorry, but I fear I must inform you that what you are playing is most certainly not any part of anything.

    OK, Just received the book, really nice! This is it for me. enough to spend a life time on! Spiral bound to boot. Notation only except for 5 songs in the back, but that will just make me a better musician.

    I must be doing something wrong here, the numbers for the tunes on the CD do not seem to match the list in the back of the book at all to what is actually playing on the CD when I read along with the music? Anyone else run into this? HELP???

    Update,
    I have been in contact with Sue Parker and she has been really great. Still not sure what is going on with the Cd but I need to relay that this is a wonderful book and resource, I have ordered a second copy to have as a spare just in case! I encourage anyone here that has an interest in Ragtime to invest in this book, has to be the most complete compilation out there and it is already spiral bound to boot! So much thanks to the Parker's for this!
