CraigS What makes a tune a Rag? (33) RE: What makes a tune a Rag? 29 Dec 03

I remember seeing somewhere that only Joplin, Scott, and Lamb could be considered the real ragtime composers - but there was a "ragtime boom" around 1910 - 1914 which led to a lot of compositions and music hall songs being styled as rags. I also remember seeing a serious rag music sheet having the direction "Tempo di Stomp" at the top - hope this doesn't confuse things.
