Default Original: Submarine Rag

Here's the Submarine Rag. I used to teach this to guitar students to get them used to working up the neck. The entire song is one chord position (the D7, 000212, or Amaj7, 002120) at 11 or so different places on the neck. I was teaching them to experiment with chord positions they are comfortable with ("cowboy chords") and try them waaaay up the neck. And then at coffeehouses and other places they started requesting it as a stand-alone. No flatpick used in the vid -

I like it, Mark. Rags are great... they're so much fun to play.

Its what they call submariners in the Navy. I was on a submarine for a couple of years. The surface fleet called us "bubbleheads," we called them "skimmers." Both question the sanity of the other.

Way back 40+ years ago when I worked with the Navy on submarines, the guys tended to call surface ships "targets."

Hi Mark,

That was very nice! Fun little piece! And you have a nice way of playing that without getting all the hard edges that a flat pick might produce. Very cool right hand as well as left hand stuff!

I hope all is well for you Mark! I am doing fine!

- Glenn
