Squirrel Toss

It’s near time for the 2019 West Coast Ragtime Festival. I felt motivated to compose another ragtime song. This one took a couple of weeks off and on, and plus a lot of minor edits ever since.

A gazorch is a large slingshot made of a bicycle innertube, often used to fire water balloons out of dormitory windows. Basket on a hair trigger. Nuts for bait. Enough said!

The recommended tempo is 84 to the quarter note (duration 2:25).
