Intro to the CAGED System
Unlocking the Guitar’s Secret: Mastering the CAGED System
What exactly is the CAGED system? To put it simply, it’s a method that demystifies the fretboard by breaking it down into five fundamental chord shapes: C, A, G, E, and D. These shapes serve as the building blocks for understanding the guitar’s structure and navigating it effortlessly. While some players might view it as a basic concept, its power lies in its versatility and applicability to all styles of music. Whether you’re strumming through folk ballads or shredding on a heavy metal riff, the CAGED system remains a constant companion, guiding your fingers to the right notes.
In this course, you’ll discover how to use the CAGED system to play chords in different positions, giving your music a richer and more dynamic sound. This also makes it easier to play music with others, and create your own songs and guitar parts. It is also an important method to begin learning and composing licks and solos. I will show you how to find these chords across the neck, learn the fretboard, use a capo and understand the common shapes behind barre chords.
