The Easy Winners arr. Two Acoustic Guitars

n this arrangement for two acoustic guitars in G the realisation tempo is 76 quarter note (crotchet) beats to the minute whilst the repeats are not played. Individual instrument parts are appended to the full score. What is interesting about performing this piece is the impact of a change of tempo on the musical character and musical outcomes. A tempo of 70 quarter note beats to the minute sounds quite slow and yet 80 quarter note beats to the minute sounds fast. Generally, there is not a great amount of performance detail indicated in ragtime music although where opportunity arises when repeating sections performers need to explore dynamic range. The formal pattern of Joplin’s ragtime pieces generally have the structure of the typical American March which can be represented by letters as I AA BB AA CC DD.
