CAGED Worksheets

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

I put together some worksheets as a follow up to the CAGED videos from 2 weeks ago. Click Here to download the four page worksheet and answer key. They work on a basic understanding of the first step in using the CAGED system, namely finding the right CAGED shape for a specific area of the guitar.

For more on the second step of using the CAGED system, visit our Super Scale Trainer. There you can tie together arpeggio / scale patterns with CAGED shapes. For example a great first step towards mastering the CAGED system is learning to play all major arpeggios in all 12 keys. By using the CAGED system all 12 keys simplify down to 5 unique patterns. And those 5 patterns all tie in to the CAGED shapes, so it’s really not as much work as it sounds. More on this soon..
