Thread: Old Ironsides

  1. #1

    Default Old Ironsides

    Just stumbled down a rabbithole on youtube and have spent the last hour listening to the Navy band Country Current. Their bluegrass is really good, in particular I like this song:

    Written by their mandolin/fiddle player MUCS White.

    I'm trying to learn and transcribe it but was both wondering if anyone had already done it. Also just to let everyone that may not have known (like me, two hours ago) about Navy bluegrass. BZ Country Current!

    I believe Frank Solivan was a member. There are other prominent pros as well, but their names escape me.
