    Default Solace - A Mexican Serenade by Scott Joplin (1909)

    Ragtime played slooooow and gentle.

    Arranged for quartet of 2 mandolins, 8ve mandola and guitar.

    I have used the mandola mainly to emphasise the bass line. The piece could be played (with minor modifications) without it, but I prefer the strong, regular bass as a good foundation for the syncopation above

    Oh, I do like that. I guess I missed it on its first go-round. Thanks for posting it and thanks for bringing it back so I could find it.
