CoLab ragtime Day 2

A slow day today, we spent all day learning the Paragon Rag, what a slow day.  Hopefully the pace will pick up tomorrow, we still haven’t decided on what other pieces we’re going to play but “Serenade” by Scott Joplin and “I love the Piano” by Irving Berlin are all on the table.  Basically it turns out that ragtime though it is easy enough to understand it is not so easy to play rehearse or arrange…  It doesn’t help when rehearsals are slow to get started.  Tip: not everything has to be discussed in great detail or it will take an age to finish anything.
