Welcome to part 3 of the CAGED System explanation. Here is the point where I give you the remaining fingering patterns for the 4 remaining elements of the C-A-G-E-D Grid. So far we have only seen the one pattern for the G letter. Now I give you the C, the A, the E and the D.
Lets start at the next letter along from the G on the C-A-G-E-D Grid, namely the E. Here is the E Shape pattern to learn.
Now here is the next Shape pattern along the C-A-G-E-D Grid. The D Shape pattern.
Now here is the next Shape pattern along the C-A-G-E-D Grid. We start again at the beginning letter the C. So C-A-G-E-D. Here is the C Shape pattern.
So lastly here is the last remaining shape pattern to learn. So following the Grid the next letter in the C-A-G-E-D Grid is the A. Here is the A Shape pattern of notes.
Learn these patterns before moving on. While you practice these just learn the patterns starting from anywhere on the fingerboard you like. You are not playing any particular key so at this point don’t play these shape patterns against any chords at all just learn them as shapes. Remember if you are starting all the patterns from the same fret then in effect you will be playing in several different keys. Played like this they will not sound right together. For the moment ignore any reference to a particular Key and Ignore Chords! Just learn the shapes. When you have these under your fingers you can move on with the lessons.
