Lil' Rev || Workshops & Performances

I went to Lil' Rev's workshop at Mike DaSilva's Ukulele Building Workshop yesterday. I never miss a workshop with LR when he comes around for his annual visit. He's an amazing talent, teacher and story teller. The workshop was on Jug Band Songs on the Ukulele. He is constantly teaching player development skills and written several music books for Hal Leonard, including "101 Licks For the Ukulele" which is a great one to have in your library. (NOTE: It is in GCEA tuning but worth studying.)

He borrowed my Favilla baritone ukulele, tuned it DF#AD, and played one song in his mini concert after the workshop. Hopefully a little of his magic has rubbed off on my bari.

Rev. will be heading North towards Sacramento, beautiful seaside Mendocino, and then up to Oregon and Washington before heading to the Reno Ukulele Festival in Nevada on April 1st. Be sure to check out LR's Calendar.
