Description: The Checkerberry Rag is an upbeat ragtime with a country flair! It sounds harder to play than it really is. Written in three keys, the melody is transposed as well as developed throughout the piece, incorporating staccato as well as legato touch. Purpose: *Improve finger dexterity *Practice in the art of phrasing/staccato *Increase ability to maintain a steady tempo Suggestions for Instruction: The student should begin by identifying the key signatures. Practicing hands separately will aid in learning to switch between legato phrasing and staccato notes. Don't be in a hurry to play up to tempo. Slow, careful practice is the path to beautiful mistake-free performances. Key: C Major

"Thank you, thank you, thank you! Received the guitar yesterday afternoon, only 1 day after it shipped UPS ground. It's everything as described and more. Pestered you a couple of times with questions about my order and you were gracious, down to earth, and quick to respond. We can't wait to see our Granddaughter's face when she opens this gift. Would highly recommend your site to anyone."
