Free Guitar Workshop Series- Understanding And Using The CAGED System For Guitar
By: Frank Macri
Posted in: Music News And Tips
The CAGED system is a method of fretboard organization based on five familiar open chord shapes that can be used in any style of music. It allows one to visualize any chord all over the neck and know its interval structure. It also provides a system of seeing the associated arpeggios and scales overlaid on top of any chord. This provides an integrative approach to viewing and understanding chords and their related arpeggios and scales instead of a fragmented picture. Learning this system will help your rhythm playing by being able to easily play inversions and use better voice leading between chord changes. Soloists use the CAGED system to map out chord tones within scale patterns and then they target these notes while they solo so that their lead lines are guided by notes related closely to the chords in a progression. This allows ones’ solos to make sense harmonically and be more melodic. In short, this is the operating system of the fretboard in standard tuning.
This workshop will cover how to learn, practice and apply step by step:
