Pineapple Rag is a piano rag musical arrangement composed by Scott Joplin in the United States. Although not as popular compared to the Maple Leaf Rag, the Pineapple Rag is one of Joplin's best works.
Pineapple Rag is different from other rags since it is slightly slower than other rags and features a tropical accent throughout the composition. The sheet music is written primarily in Bb major in the beginning section and shifts to Eb major after the middle section. Since the tempo is predominately average and is written in marching tempo, the sheet music is easier compared to the Maple Leaf Rag. Just like any ragtime arrangement, the music is separated into four sections with the notations ABAC.
