About This Class

Learn the CAGED system for guitar! Complete with print-outs for every chord, scale, and arpeggio shape. The CAGED system is a set of moveable shapes that will:

  • Help you memorize the fretboard & locate notes
  • Solo & improvise with ease, in any key!
  • Transpose songs (i.e. change keys!)
  • Improve your understanding of the fretboard and music theory

The CAGED system is a vital piece of music theory for guitarist. In fact, you could pretty much get away with only knowing the CAGED system, that's how much power it holds! Luckily though, it's not that hard to master. It's just comes down to memorizing the shapes and knowing how they connect.

Once you got the patterns, you'll be able to play anything!

Jared does a great job of breaking down the CAGED System and making it easy to understand. He also teaches the Arpeggio, Pentatonic and Scale Shapes as they relate to the chords. I liked this method of teaching them all together because first, that is the way you solo over a chord. And second, because all of the notes for the chords, the scales and the shapes are basically the same notes. It makes it easier to learn and puts them in perspective with each other. I used his pdf charts provided as I took the course to help me keep up and it also helped me understand the notes he was playing. Great job Jared – Thanks!
