    I've always loved Victor's "Diferencias", although it's well outside my skill range. It sounds wonderful on the A-9, an instrument I wouldn't have associated with this piece. Exceptional playing!

    Wow! That was almost confusing, seeing one mando and hearing two..... very impressive!

    Godt klaret, Jesper!

    We'll have to incorporate that into our next playing session. How about we try to make that before next year's mando workshop? :D

    Really great job, man. Very impressed.

    Thank you so much, Jesper! I immediately recognized the "Chop Melody Style" as something unique and it's something I've been doing on ukulele for years without ever really giving it a name. And yet I've never really thought to try it on mandolin although Sierra Hull employs a similar technique on her version of "People Get Ready."

    Your improvisation book looks great and I will definitely be ordering a copy.

    Tab or not, there is no way I could play that!

    The part at 1:30-1:33 (harmonic & hammer-on) - very cool.

    Great stuff, Sierra never disappoints! I remember my band having to go onstage after her band "Clay Hess" in summer of 07 at a fest in Western NY and while she was playing I was talking with Jack Lawrence about her playing. I said "boy that little girl can play" Jack-eyes got big "YES SHE CAN" She was pretty young at that time, heck still is.

    Hull's Victory is a name that come's to mind, however that name is already taken. I'd suggest the Marvelous Monday Jig as title.
    Sierra has great technique and style. And I always enjoy her performances.

    What a National treasure!! I still go back on YouTube and watch that talented young lady playing Cluck Old Hen with Alison and the boys... The Mandolin world is in good hands going forward! Great song played with blazing speed and accuracy!

    Yay Sierra finally featured on mandolin Mondays! Now I can die in peace.... jk.
    But seriously awesome picking! I want this tune to become the theme for a movie, but there's no movies that could qualify for this.

    I have to say, one of the best things for me about Mandolin Cafe. I like the variety of musicians you have presented and
    continue to present.

    Thank you for adding Mandolin Mondays to our lives! The series has become such a fixture, and Mondays are much easier with these great tunes.
