    Well that tune rocks! Nicely played, and with authority. Stands up very well as a solo performance.

    Jesse makes anything sound cool

    I love it when a good mandolin solo holds the rhythm all on it’s own, no accompaniment necessary!

    Also the person walking past and going inside at 2 mins made me laugh

    Great work!

    That's really great. And thanks for turning me on to his Telemann album. I really like this man's music.

    Really great to listen to and watch! I will happily listen to more. Call me crazy, but those slides on the G-string between 00:15 and 00:30 made me thing of tablas (drums).

    Man I love watching Mandolin Monday videos. I just started playing in December, and I canít believe the accessibility MM and the community in general provides to so many of these great players. Canít wait to hear more from Alon!

    Killer why does this remind me of Spanish Caravan by Robby K+ the DOORS! I know not the same melody but hey it does!

    Very well done, Alon. Interesting Musical choice. I’ve heard it on Guitar & it sounds equally wonderful on Mandolin. In his hands, of course. I’ve had the opportunity to attend a couple of Alon’s workshops. He is charming & instructive. I hope to cross paths with him again.

    Wow, very nice, Alon. Welcome to Mandolin Mondays!

    "A work in progress?" I suppose, but this is good enough for me.

    "Alon's latest mandolin recording is a magnificent album of Georg Philipp Telemann compositions arranged for mandolin." Yes, magnificent!

    Oh, you make that sound so nice.

    I got one of these after seeing Roger play one. It’s great fun to play and the sound is quite amazing.

    What a sweet sound and such a cool tune.

    great stuff. I have been drooling over one of those flat tops since last August when I got to play Emory Lester's. Just a beautiful sound.
  35. Dagger Gordon's Avatar
    One of my favourite musicians. It's a treat to hear him playing an octave mandolin just on his own.

    That instrument really sings in Roger's hands.

    Thanks Roger...
