Part 1

The CAGED system is a good method for learning chords, scales and arpeggios as the scale and its related chord/arp shape are interlocked so itís a very visual system that breaks the fretboard down into usable areas. There are 5 shapes and they are based on the C chord, A chord, G chord, E chord and D chord. Letís start with the 5 chords and the major scale.

C Major
e------------0----------------------
b------------1----------------------
g------------0----------------------
d------------2----------------------
a------------3----------------------
e------------------------------------

A Major
e------------0----------------------
b------------2----------------------
g------------2----------------------
d------------2----------------------
a------------0----------------------
e------------------------------------

G Major
e-------------3---------------------
b-------------0---------------------
g-------------0---------------------
d-------------0---------------------
a-------------2---------------------
e-------------3---------------------

E Major
e-------------0---------------------
b-------------0---------------------
g-------------1---------------------
d-------------2---------------------
a-------------2---------------------
e-------------0---------------------

D Major
e-------------2---------------------
b-------------3---------------------
g-------------2---------------------
d-------------0---------------------
a------------------------------------
e------------------------------------


These are the 5 major shapes you will find in the major scales across the fretboard.
