Shultzmeier Rag is a splendid rag in the sonata form of AABACA with a 4-bar introduction whereby the A-, B- and C-strains are each of 16-, 20- and 32-bars respectively and the whole is written in the key of g-minor. The A-strain is a beautiful rippling solo for the 1st tenor with light bass accompaniment whilst the treble voice counts bars and tries to look intelligent. The treble then takes the B-strain which is characterised by close harmony. In the C-strain, the treble and 2nd tenor have the melody an octave apart whilst the 1st tenor alternates to treble for bell-like passages with rippling sixteenths. All-in-all, a great ensemble piece.
