Kennedy Rag, Part 1: Melody
“Kennedy Rag” is in the key of F and was recorded in the 1920s by the Stripling Brothers, Charlie and Ira, who were from Alabama. Much of their music has a ragtime influence and reflects the popular music of the time, and “Kennedy Rag” is no exception, with syncopated phrases and a song-like melody in the B part. In this video, Bruce plays the whole thing through and then walks you through the melody of both parts, phrase by phrase.
