The CAGED System for Guitar
Those of you familiar with the first position chords, C-A-G-E-D, may not know it but you have at your disposal a powerful tool for navigating the entire fretboard. These simple chord shapes can be repeated throughout the neck to make chord inversions (same chord but with the notes arranged in a different order). In this class we will use the CAGED chords in their major, minor and 7th chord forms and work them up the guitar neck. We will be using simple strumming and chord patterns, learn a few riffs and vastly expand our chord vocabulary. Participants only need to know these first position chords to take the class.
