I think that, like ragtime and certain other idioms, the Rhapsody In Blue does not fit well onto a linear scale of difficulty. Physically about 6/10 I suppose, but the estimate is meaningless because of its unique musical character - that's where difficulties arise.

It's not legally available for free. The copyright was owned by Warner Brothers, and I think Hal Leonard has now acquired it.
