Here is an introduction to the CAGED System

What is the CAGED system?

Well the word CAGED is taken from the 5 open chords C, A, G, E, & D that you will have learned to play as a beginner.  These for the template that we will use to play the chord shapes across the fret board. It is the building block for guitars in standard tuning. The CAGED system is an essential method in learning the entire fret board. When we start to learn the guitar we tend to stick very close the the nut and seldom move past the 5th fret into the scarey world of the middle of the neck. As our learning progress we need to access higher notes on the fret board we we need to learn a system that help accuratly use these areas and expand our playing.

Its import to understand that the 5 chords mentioned are created through the intervals used to build a chord. This being the case a C chord can be moved up the fret board 11 times to play each root note position of all 11 notes. The intervals will remain the same only the position on the fret board will change.

Please watch the video lesson as i walk you through the CAGED system hopefully by the end of the video you will have a much better understanding of how the system works.
