The two-day event mixed performance with the practical including the How, Why, What, When and Where of Chords.
Many of the participants in the workshops also landed on stage in a number of ‘‘beginner’’ concerts.
On Saturday night and again during the market day yesterday the indoor and outdoor stages were turned over to the guest artists including Eat Ya Greens, Chris Newman and friends, Dancing with Angels, Clark Morgan, Faux Gras, Just for Fun, Fat Chance, The Belindas and the Snowy Mountain Ramblers.
The weekend included a primary school program to learn to make and play instruments, compose music and write lyrics.
Other activities for children included clay modelling, face painting, mask making and games.
The festivities concluded last night with a less formal Muster wind-down and jam at the Girgarre Hall.
