Recording on the album Benny Thomasson: Legendary Texas Fiddler


Thomasson played this nice rag as a three-part tune, laid out AA BB’ A CC A. The A and C parts are in the key of G while the B part is in the key of C. The C part mainly consists of arpeggiated chords, which Thomasson used quite frequently when devising variations. He ended the tune with his trademark descending triplet run.
