Joplin Scott - The Entertainer tab

"The Entertainer"
Scott Joplin

Transcribed from piano

4-4 time

Great song. I didn't bother adjusting the tempo, but there's still some there between 
notes. Some of the ~'s on there aren't really noticeable in the actual song, but it just 
good when you play it like that.

I didn't tab any hammer-ons or pull-offs since you can't do those on a piano, but if you 
screw with it a bit it always fun too.

Key:
~ = elongate / let ring for short time
