[PDF] Weidt, A. J. - Ragtime Study

Post by williamgroome » Mon Jan 26, 2009 2:54 am

This is the first of two American ragtime guitar pieces I will upload. Ragtime, A Study in Syncopation is by A.J. Weidt and written in 1902. It is a short piece that will give you a feel for the sound of ragtime.

Owl,
This is book 4(of 5) of Weidt's Elementary Studies and I have the original from 1902. Walter Jacobs publisher. 7 pieces total in this book which is about 10 pages. The other pieces in this volume are Merry Moments Polka, Ping Pong Galop, The A m a z o n March, Prelude in F major(Carcassi) and Amusement in 3/4 Time. All by Weidt except as noted.

Yes Owl, it is wonderful to have the original books and sheet music from this era. My earliest book is from 1850. I've been collecting for around 7 years now and have amassed a nice collection of originals from what is known as American Parlor guitar music. Now that I know how to use PDFcreator and how to upload scores, I will put some more of this music in the our scores section for others here to play. I've gotten so much from Delcamp, I would like to do something to repay.

William... as a collector myself (LP records and just old music books in general) I know what a joy it is to have these lovely old pieces
Have you seen the old Beckerman book... it's for piano but it goes way back... I'm not sure what date
I think it's called The American School of Ragtime Piano Playing... I don't have the book but I have it in PDF format... some nice little tunes

That would be great... I look forward to seeing some more scores :D

William,

This piece and the others you've uploaded are really great, a valuable addition to the collection here. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing more -- especially music by American composers, and that feature American melodies or that display distincly American styles. As you say, it's an area of CG repertoire that is relatively unknown and unexplored.

Thanks again, and keep them coming!

Thanks Mickey. A simple little intro, for the era, on how ragtime should sound. A teaching aid of sorts. A.J. Weidt wrote a number of other pieces with a ragtime feel. Including a number of pieces for classical banjo.

Very interesting study. Is there a chance you could make the full book available by uploading it here?

Thanks!
