CAGED Guitar

Remembering Chords based on CAGED and modal positions

If we look at the modal positions we can see that we can figure out different chord positions as well. Basically this process is based on what is called the CAGED system. All it is really is a different way of looking at what you’ve already learned in guitar chords.

Basically with CAGED we can create chord forms up and down the fretboard from the formation of the chords C, A, G, E and D in that order. First let’s look at the chord formations for each of these chords.
