Description

What is the CAGED System?

To get the most out of your guitar playing, you need to have a greater understanding of the fret board.

Wouldn’t  it be nice if the guitar was  laid out in a logical fashion? Well guess  what, it is, and in these lessons I’m going  to introduce the CAGED  system.

Understanding The CAGED System will deepen your  understanding of the  instrument in many ways. You'll be able to play  all over the fret board  and see better the relationships between  chords, scales and arpeggios, and see the fretboard’s  inherent logic. 

Once  you know your CAGED system Major chords, the next stage it to attach   or ‘layer’ on to them a useful scale. In this case, you will learn how  the Major & Minor Pentatonic scale work logically with the CAGED  system.


Lets then put all this to a practical use.

Armed  with knowledge we will look at examples of how the CAGED system works  in the real world with examples of standard chord progression and the  Pro's would approach them.


Improve your soloing

With  the aid of professional backing tracks you will learn how to combine  both the CAGED system and the pentatonic scales to create great sounding  solo's.
