Comments:

This breakdown contains phrases reminiscent of both Ragtime Annie and Eighth of January. Each part consists of two lines. Kessinger played both low and high variants of the B part, alternating the low and high B parts on odd and even times through the tune. He also used a good bit of vibrato, denoted by squiggly lines to the left of notes to be played vibrato.
