Copyright :Public Domain
I have carefully created this public domain sheet music from the original scores of 1899 as seen here on the http://imslp.org/wiki/Maple_Leaf_Rag_%28Joplin,_Scott%2 9#IMSLP270188

Notes on this engraving

Page 1 - In Strain A 10th bar RH has a missing A flat to accompany the first F. This is may be mistake as when Strain A is reprised after strain B this missing A flat has now been included. This omission has not been corrected in the Complete Piano Rags edited by David A Jasen nor in the the Collected Piano Works edited by Vera Brodsky Lawrence
Page 2 - In Strain A reprise 10th bar RH has extra A flat compared to Strain A on page 1
Page 2 - In Strain A reprise 12th bar LH has extra E flat on last chord compared to Strain A on page 1

Page 3 - 2nd repeat of the trio has ties that cross through the first repeat. In this engraving they are placed manually as MuseScore does not support ties and slurs that cross over voltas.



2014-07-21 - added the repeat at beginning of page 2 that was either overlooked by me or deleted when I was investigating the repeats not working in playback
2014-07-22 - changed wrong chord in bar 33, and in bar 63 changed a C for a B
2014-08-16 - Bar 60 replaced D bass note for B in LH - also changed very last bar to be 3 eighths in length - also changed layout spacing to 1.7 - Bar 50 changed G to A in first chord of LH - generally improved look of piece to match original sheet music
2015-05-08 updated to Musescore 2.0 and added missing note to bar 44
2016-04-13 made various perfectionist formatting tweaks
2016-09-12 adjusted beam positions and stylised ties to match the original sheets in anticipation of uploading this work to IMSLP

2017-10-29 - I decided to add the missing note that appears in the 10th bar of the A strain reprise but is actually clearly missing in the first playing of the A strain
