Overview Of EDCAG – The Minor Version of The CAGED System – Lesson 34

In this lesson we show how the CAGED system works in over minor chords, arpeggios & scales.

Syn’s Tips

Try strumming/playing these chords sequentially. Play to a metronome so that you change to the next chord in perfect time. Go as slow as you need to in order to play it perfectly before increasing the tempo or else you will develop very bad habits that take WAY longer to unlearn than good habits take TO learn.

Play along to the backing tracks and metronome provided in the “content” menu in the lesson player.

Jake Young Theory wise...how do you know which notes you can add to certain chords to get the arpeggio?

Brandon Cleary If you take the 3 main notes of a chord's arpeggio (for example, D minor is D, F, and A) you simply keep adding those notes to the arpeggio and extend it

João Jófili First time I've ever felt my wrist start to fail me a little! The G minor shape is definitely something hard!
