CAGED System – The D Shape – Lesson 28 Brian Haner Sr. In this lesson we tackle the “D shape” of the CAGED system; its correlating major chord, arpeggio, pentatonic & major scales. Syn’s Tips Congratulations you now know all five positions of The CAGED system! Papa Gates offered some sage advice in this lesson regarding the connecting of the positions. You can start at any position and simply repeat the word CAGED when you want to go past position "D" and that is because CAGED spans the entire octave so the second "C" in CAGED would start an octave above the first "C". The same applies to all of the positions! Ask the community for help if this doesn't make sense to you! Also remember my tips from the previous lesson about position "skipping" and the invaluable art of "phrasing"!
