Honey Moon Rag, another optimistic Scott composition which almost begs to rattled off but please note the composer's request namely: Do not play this piece fast. Its form is of AABACCBB with a 4-bar interlude preceding the CC-strains.
As can be seen on the left, the cover of the original sheet music, a pictorial pun, appropriately shows a nattily clad honey moon pair looking back to their friends at the place of their matrimony and being smiled on by a benevolent, honey coloured full-moon.
As with much of Scott's work here too the upper registers are widely explored demanding meticulous tonguing from the performers.
Honey Moon Rag was published by Stark Music Co, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested
