Sierra Hull - Secrets Songs & Tunes composed by Sierra Hull and John Lawless. For Mandolin. Boxed, Solos. Acutab. Bluegrass. Beginning-Intermediate. 2-DVD Set. Duration 240 minutes. Published by Acutab Publications (MB.DSH1).
Sierra Hull started her first year of college in 2009, and is already one of the most celebrated mandolinists in and around bluegrass music. While still in high school she released her debut CD, Secrets, on Rounder Records. On this 2-DVD set Sierra teaches the mandolin solos she plays on Secrets, plus a number of instrumentals she recorded as a pre teen.
The material taught in this 2-DVD set will be within the reach of any intermediate to advanced mandolin player/student, and most new players will profit from working through these songs as well. Each is demonstrated in great detail at a slow speed, making it easy to understand.
To get things started, AcuTab's John Lawless leads Sierra through a discussion about how she came to be a stunning virtuoso at such a young age, including her early influences and inspirations. The bulk of the video, however, is all music with 10 complete songs and tunes demonstrated, taken from her critically-acclaimed debut album Secrets, from Rounder Records (CDROUN0601).
Sierra teaches these songs carefully and in great detail. She and John discuss each solo before it is demonstrated by an all-star band, and then she breaks it down, piece-by-piece. Even though a few of the solos are fairly difficult, the way she teaches puts them within the reach of most pickers. She goes slowly, breaking each solo into easily-digestible bits, stringing them all together in a format accessible to beginning and intermediate students.
