Brad Carlton's CAGED
Dominant is the sequel to his acclaimed "breakthrough"
course. In CAGED Cracked, students developed a comprehensive of
the CAGED system - five moveable major chord forms (C, A, G, E and D) that
can be played in any position, up and down the neck. They also learned EDCAG
- the five moveable minor forms that can likewise be played in any position,
up and down the fretboard. This new CAGED Dominant series focuses
solely on the moveable dominant chord forms, which are especially useful for
blues, rock and jazz.
