The Icy Road has been added to 4 tunebooks.
Here is the first tune off of Randal Bays’ “A Rake of Tunes”. I’ve transcribed it without frills and a little bit differently to to way he plays it.
I decided to write it down it here after teaching the tune to my local session and receiving some positive feedback on it. It’s a pretty good tune, with some nice opportunities for droning strings and tenor banjo chords.
It was composed by his son, whose name I forget as I don’t have the CD case with me right now.
Just found the CD, this tune was composed by Owen Bays.
