The guitar neck layout isn’t intuitive and easy to navigate. The CAGED ‘system’ is a structured way of mapping chords, scales, arpeggios, etc. across the neck of the fretboard. CAGED is an invaluable piece of know-how to help us map it out. Here we focus on chords only and how you can use this knlowledge to play all over the fretboard.
Overview about our series of Music Corners
These weekly one hour sessions are designed to give us the tools to self-improve and widen our knowledge in the following general areas: rhythm, reading music, improvising, understanding music theory, getting good tone, how to play a solo, how to play with a group, how to develop your ear, learning the rules of music through transcribing the history of a genre. Our tutor, Jamie McCredie, will share key things he has learned over years that have helped to make him the professional guitarist and musician he is today.
Relevant materials will be available for each session.
This lesson is suitable for average-and-above players but you should a couple of the pentatonic patterns. Barre chords might be used. Remember that most levels will take away some nuggets from these short sessions to look at and work on later.
Call us for a chat at any time
Whatever level you are, you’ll have lots of takeaways to work on later. If you’d like to go through the course please call or email.
These sessions are more focused on what need to know rather than simply what we would like to know. They’re there to challenge us and widen our eyes and ears to help improve our playing and musicianship. Be patient and diligently work through the material at home.
