    Default “Mineola Rag”

    I tried fading this tune out at the end but that didn’t work too well.
    That’s why I don’t work for Ken Burns.....

    Very catchy Rag. Thanks for sharing.

    I would be very interested in the sheet music for that one.

    Thanks, Troy

    I’m sorry, I can’t read music. I learned it by ear. I slowed down some YouTube videos
    and played them over and over until the tunewas pounded into my head.
    I’m glad you enjoyed the video. Thanks for watching.

    Great tune, Lappy. One of my favorites.

    Interesting fact about this tune: the earliest recorded version by the East Texas Serenaders was played in Eb. For some reasons this band loved the flat keys. Most of us mortals play it in D which makes a lot more sense to me. Also ETS was among the very few old time string bands that used a cello.

    Nice tune and good picking. I like the cool Kay Venetian vibe in the appearance of that mandolin, too.
