Randy Clepper will be giving two bouzouki workshops at Quarantune Dulcimer Festival 2022 on Sat, Oct. 8. They are very cheap, so you can't go wrong registering. Randy will go deep into chords and Rhythm Technique. You'll also get a link to download the workshop afterwise.

Registration is open until Saturday, Oct 1st, 7pm EDT -- there are still spaces left in both classes!
This is what Randy writes about his workshops:
Irish Bouzouki: Chord Voicings
Bouzouki Non-Level Specific (Saturday, Session 6: Oct 8, 4:15 - 5:15 PM EDT, 8:15 - 9:15 PM GMT)
You’ll learn some favorite chord voicings for playing in different keys. We’ll explore major, minor, and “modal” examples. We’ll include some countermelody movements as well as two-and three-finger movable chord patterns, and explore when it is advantageous to use a capo. Examples in GDAD-based tuning but other tunings are welcome. Novice to intermediate level. BRING A CAPO.
Irish Bouzouki: Exploring Rhythm Techniques
Bouzouki Non-Level Specific (Saturday, Session 7: Oct 8, 5:30 - 6:30 PM EDT, 9:30 - 10:30 PM GMT)
We’ll explore basic rhythms and strumming patterns for jigs (several varieties), reels, hornpipes, polkas slides, etc. on the bouzouki. We will look at tempo-based adjustments in strumming, e.g, what should I do when a jig/polka/slide is too fast, what to emphasize, what can be left out. Examples in GDAD-based tuning but other tunings are welcome. Novice to intermediate level.
