Watch the Chord Studies: CAGED Chords Vol. 1 online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Chord Studies: CAGED Chords Vol. 1
Hi this is Brad Carlton. Welcome to this Guitar Lab edition focused on CAGED chord applications. Each individual edition in this guitar lab series features 15 studies focused on a particular application of chords. I designed this series to provide you with unlimited, creative options for crafting interesting and compelling rhythm guitar parts. Across the series we'll explore essential and exotic chord voicings, all-purpose substitutions, creative approaches, and performance techniques. In this group of lessons, we're going to be applying the CAGED system and the EDCAG system of chord voicings to accomodate three different progressions. Our first progression will be A to G. Our second progression will be A minor to B minor. Our third progression will be B minor, A, and G. I'll break down and demonstrate the chord studies over rhythm tracks in a variety of styles. Using chord progressions commonly encountered in that style. You'll also get chord diagrams that'll clearly give you the left-hand fingerings, and you'll get the jam tracks for you to work with on your own. So get your guitar and let's make some music.
