Warm holiday greetings, ukulele friends!
The Austin Ukulele Society is thrilled to host one of the hottest ukulele performers and teachers touring the US today: Lil Rev! He’ll be conducting a workshop and house concert right here in Austin on Thursday, January 17.
The Workshop: Hot Licks for Ukulele
90 action-packed minutes of classic rock, blues, and jazz hot licks for ukulele! You’ll learn intros, endings, turnarounds, licks, fills, riffs and how to use them. Get important soloing tips from Rev, as well some juicy music history. There will be handouts and feel free to bring a recorder with you so you can retain these fantastic licks and stories!
