Hi
I am reading the article " Caged, Part 1 - Introduction and the C Shape" by Andrew Cockburn (https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_forum/index.php?showtopic=2944).
Starting from a C chord/major scale if we move two steps up we get a D chord/scale. Clear and easy. Then he says: "In our key of D (2 frets up remember), the associated chords would be G and A. Using the C shape of CAGED, working with the key of D, which we now understand means moving up 2 frets, means that we can play G and A using exactly the same chord shapes, just moved up a couple of frets, like this:..."

I really do not understand this, can someone help me?

It meant that if you move the A shape of the chord C two frets higher you'll get the A shape of the chord D:

A Shape:


C Major (A Shape)


D Major (A Shape)



and the same with the G Shape. Does it make sense now?

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately i did not get it yet. I can't understand, why talking about A shape while explaining the C shape?

It's called "A shape" because the CAGED system is based on the following 5 open chords positions...

C shape


A shape


G shape


E shape


D shape




The CAGED system explains that every chord can be played in 5 different shapes. Every shape is identified by the equivalent open chord name... here you have an example with the chord D.

D (D shape)


D (C shape)


D (A shape)


D (G shape)


D (E shape)



Does it make sense now?

Like Gab said, CAGED system is based on 5 chords on open strings:

C
A
G
E
D

You can check out the first 5 patterns Gab provided and see all those chords. You can "slide" these shapes anywhere on the neck, and get various chords, depending where you "land" smile.gif

So:
In Ivan Pentatonic Workshop Level 1 Caged Format, we start with a Am pentatonic scale in open position:



How this releted to CAGED? Had a long chat with Gabriel today and things are clearer but still confusing for me.

Thanks in advance

Exactly what part is confusing mate? smile.gif

The CAGED system features 5 positions on the fretboard for playing different chords. As Gab explained, there are 5 different open string chords.

When you shift the chords horizontally, you'll get 5 positions. Check out Gab's post, and see how he goes through 5 positions of a D chord on the neck. These 5 positions are the foundation of the CAGED system.

The relation between the caged system and the scale. For example on the pentatonic scale above from your lesson which shape are you using?
