8 Bar Blues Night- Together we'll explore the blues in 8 bars per song. Most blues are typically 12 bars total. The 8 Bar Blues Progression is a really wonderful body of work and Lil’ Rev will help you understand how to recognize, play, and build a songbag of your own 8 bar blues classics. We'll also explore blues turnarounds and moveable 7th chords in the great new class Rev just created for his August offerings.

Lil' Rev was born and bred in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with dual passions for music and education.   After college he taught music to grade schoolers at the Milwaukee Jewish Day School and served as an adjunct music historian and lecturer at The University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.  After many years of performing in the Midwest, Lil' Rev left his teaching jobs behind to pursue his musical dreams full-time.  Since then, he has traveled hundreds of thousands of miles, visited every state in the Union (except Alaska and Hawaii), wrote almost a dozen instructional books, recorded over a dozen albums and taught thousands of students ukulele and harmonica.
