This is a challenging mandolin rag, one of five mandolin tunes that Doc Roberts recorded.  The challenge comes from odd syncopation, octave jumps, and a two-line passage in the C part with high double-stops.  In that passage, play the lower note on the second string (either an F# or F-natural, thus either at the 9th or 8th fret, respectively) and the higher notes on the first string.
