How to Become A Better Dulcimer Player - 7

Guitar Chord Shapes


Do you ever feel left out at some dulcimer jams when you didn’t know the song? You could play backup chords if you knew them and knew when to play them. If you are fortunate enough to have a guitar player at your jam, your problem is solved.

You have probably heard at some point in your dulcimer career “to watch the guitar player for the chord changes”. That is all well and good; however, you first have to know what the guitar chord shapes look like.

I have attached four PDF files showing the major chords for the Key of D (D-G-A) and for the key of G (G-C-D). Yes, there are more chords within each key. Learn the other chords if you want to. The three basic chords for each key will let you play your dulcimer in that jam.



Learning these guitar chord shapes will take a little time to commit to memory; however, the effort is worth it to be able to play in a jam.
