The caged system is not defined
« on: May 10, 2017, 08:47:05 am »
 I have read and re-read the caged  system in the practical music theory book but have failed to comprehend what it is. C chord shape A chord shape etc is clear but what it does and why escapes me. I realise that it means you can play chords in different shapes but I have to ask ' for what purpose? How does it help? How do you put it together?
I tried to search for answers but the search panel blocks out some of the screen so I cannot work that either.
Any clarification would be great so I can move on. Thanks

Kirk Lorange explains it quite well here.

As my daughter might say "amazeballs". Great responses .thanks guys. I'm starting on it now. In answer to the question as to where I am in my journey. Starting again after many false starts and applying myself properly this time. More time available so should make it stick.
I will check out all the answers but so far I'm guessing that I will still have to work it in to my practice to gain full benefit.
Thanks

If you're starting again, like a few of us have, I'd strongly recommend working through Justin's Beginners and Intermediate Courses. They'll serve as a refresher, depending how far you got before but you can bet there will be stuff that other courses/teaches missed/skip or just ain't got a scooby about. MHO is all.

Thanks Toby,
I will start at the intermediate and try to pick up missing links. My weird brain has always grabbed the wrong end of many sticks. Currently I am interpreting the point of caged system is to know where chord groups can be played at the same fret (or close to). Other than that it seems it is just an exercise in finding chords on the neck.
Back to my studies.....

Loyd, yeah it is about being able to play them in any place, but notice that although the notes are the same, the timbre is different, so it can also be about the sound. This makes them great to variations  It can make your rhythm playing much more interesting - check out the other guy from the Grateful  Dead,  a for example. Also some shapes lend themselves to extensions - such as Jimi Hendrix style chords, or adding the sus 4 to a D shape etc.
