I'm in, I'll have to adjust my schedule and drop time on other things but improvisation is good to study.

CAGED is about the 5 open chord shape you can reproduce like a sequence, you can shift them according the tonality of your track

i'm right ?

I printed the 2 courses about CAGED system and I'll read this today !
But I didn't understand what we are supposed to do this first week... arpeggios on I,V,IV,V ?
And then ? We may record something and show you ?

Great. So lets see if I understood this right...

We have to learn the following:
1) C Major scale based on the open chord shapes of the C-A-G-E-D System
2) G Major scale (2 Patterns)
3) Diatonic sequences
***Question: where do these sequences come from? Is there any theory behing them or are this just good sounding sequences you created?

4) I-IV-V Arpeggios of the G Major scale

Once we are somewhat familiar with the above we should improvise against the backing and can apply any or all of the 4 things listed above.

Did I get this right?
Is there a deadline?

It is based on the open chords C A G E and D and the scales built around those chord shapes.

Hi Tom! Great questions!

Yes, that's everything you need to learn during this first week. Remember that the scale shapes are movable so once you learn the 5 shapes of C major, you already know the G major shapes, just that you start them from its roots-

About the diatonic sequences... diatonic means "using only the notes from the scale" and sequences means "an arrangemente of scale pitches whose relationships are repeated on each step of the scale". This arrangement is usually based on different intervals or patterns and the possibilities are infinite. On this assignment, the two sequences used are "groups of four" and "diatonic thirds".

About the deadline, it's supposed to be 1 week. But as we are just starting we will experiment and set it in 10 days. I'll add the date on the previous post.

Ok, so if i understood :
CAGED system shares the same form of "chords".
If I play D chord, I can play 4 others position of D chord inspired by the form of C,A,G and E chords . (and conversely)
There is 5 positions to know to play a chord from CAGED system.

am I right ?

Exactly! Feel free to post your own tabs or video showing this concept to let me check if you are totally right and also to help other students.

Maybe I am too simple...lets say I move shape #2 (from your first link - the barre C chord) from C (on A string) to G (on E String) I will get G major . And if I go 2 frets higher to A (still E string)I will get A major (A B C# D E F# G#) and so on...


Okay...got it now. You can move these shapes around as long as they are between the same strings that belong the chord shape.

Wow ...that is easy only 5 shapes to know and all major scales are available ... Is that so?
