Thank you, William!

Where did you find this? Got any more?

The only other Agnew piece I've ever come across was "La Vinita Waltz" in "Fist Classical Pieces" edited by Myrna Sislen. It's a gem of a little piece, not hard to play at all, and it gets you going way up the fretboard.

You're welcome Vesuvio and JQ.
To JQ, I found this in an issue of Crescendo magazine from December 1926. The music itself is copyright 1907. I have much more music from this era of the United States and had planned on uploading it here.
I never knew of any other pieces by Agnew. Do you still have that book JQ? I would love to see that piece and play it.

Oh, please do upload some more! Guitar music from that era has a wonderful charm all its own. :)

I do still have that book and see it's available at the "big river" and probably other places. Besides the "usual suspects" (like Sor, Carulli, etc.) it has a section devoted to pieces by American composers written for the guitar from late 19th-early 20th century.

R.S. Saunders "Elephant Promenade (A Toe Tickler)" 1903
R.L. Seamon "Metropolitan" 1904
J.E. Agnew "La Vinita Waltz" 1903
A. Shaeffer "Rose Bud Gavotte" 1897
James Flint, Jr. "The Boston Quick Step" 1853
C.V. Hayden "Minstrel Dance" 1891
George W. Persley "Sunbeam Gavotte" 1887

Thanks everyone for your interest in this music. JQ, thanks for the info on that book by Myrna Sislen. I've already found a few places to buy it and that is on my to buy list. Of the 7 American pieces, I only have one.
I'll be uploading a couple more pieces tonight.
