We are really pleased to welcome back Karen Buglass for this online Mountain Dulcimer workshop. Karen has been a much-loved tutor for two different years at our Nonsuch Annual Weekend. Her gentle teaching style and clear explanations will help you to master using chords with more flexibility and ease on your dulcimer.

Chords Up & Down the Fretboard

No need to memorize a bunch of chords or carry a favourite “cheat sheet”.  By learning a few simple shapes and patterns, you’ll have chord variations at your fingertips.  Add variety to your music and play back-up more creatively by finding chords in multiple locations.

Workshop Schedule

  • Sunday, July 12th: 3:00 – 4:30 pm (BST)
  • Cost: £8 (Karen is generously donating the proceeds to Nonsuch)


This workshop is for beginners to more advanced players. It is designed to cater for multiple levels, so that those with different skill levels will benefit.

This workshop will be held using Zoom. Information about how to access the workshop, and all the handouts will be sent out beforehand to all participants.

You will need to be able to download an up-to-date version of Zoom (v.5.0 or later) before the workshop. A laptop or iPad work best, but a smart phone is also fine. If you are unfamiliar with the technology and need help, please contact Hilary, or join one of the Nonsuch Online Zoom sessions to try it out.
