    Rialto Ripples is a great rag, but this edition has at least three errors of not notating natural signs. They are not difficult to figure out; they are just slightly annoying. I believe that the version in www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/Library-Of-Piano-Favorites/3603604 has the correct notes...

  • 2008-11-26 00:00:00.0 Fun Piece - Not the Best Edition

    This is a fun piece and the edition does not seem to have errors; however, it was slightly inconvenient for me as the middle page of the piece is not connected, but is a loose leaf inside the cover that makes up the first and last pages. Overall, it got...

    the job done and I did not have any other issues.

    This was one of Gershwin's first songs. It is a great rag, easily up there with the best of Joplin.
