CAGED System – The D Shape – Lesson 28

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"!

Ezequiel Romanko so if i'm playing starting from for example G instead of D the scales would be the same for each one of the shapes? i mean instead of playing the first position's scale for D i'm going to play the G shape scale? sorry for my bad english i don't speak it very often

Mason Lawrence say i am in the key of C and i just finished my D shape chord, since i am now at the 13th fret would I skip the C shape and go to A? I get lost once i get to fret 12.

Courtney Wright You would play the C shape starting with your index finger going across fret 12.

Nathan Register Just spell caged after the d shape you go to the c shape, if the fret board was infinite it would just say caged over and over again.
