LITTLE CREEK RAG. Old-Time, Country Rag. USA, Missouri. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A fast breakdown piece composed by Missouri fiddler Lonnie Robertson. It is a 'rag' in name only as it is fast, relatively un-syncopated, and has none of the usual ragtime chord progressions. It was not unusual to append the word 'Rag' or 'Blues' to breakdown tunes.
