    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.
