This "Ragtime Two Step" was featured in the film "The Sting" in an orchestrated version and is among Joplin's happiest sounding rags. It is written in A-flat Major and D-flat Major, and in 2/4 time. The use of so many black keys actually makes this piece easier to play than others with simpler key signatures. The left hand is required to play in "stride" style, alternating bass notes and chords throughout the song, and the right hand plays in typical ragtime syncopation. This is Scott Joplin classic ragtime at its best!

    The easy winners is one of Joplins most famous rags and deserves to be so. As long as one can maintain a steady left hand beat, and not play the piece too fast, they should be able to make it sound great!
