Tips for playing Level 3 "Maple Leaf Rag":
This Level 3 "Maple Leaf Rag" is arranged to be a lot easier than the original. It is also in the key of C major (easier key) instead of the original key of E flat major that Joplin wrote. Only a few fingering numbers are provided. You do have to move around the right-hand hand positions a lot. However, the left-hand stays close to C position (C 5-finger scale position). Please pay attention to all the staccato notes and make them bouncy and crisp which will make this piece sound very lively.
