Watch the Downshift online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Chord Studies: CAGED Chords Vol. 3
Starting this progression off, we're up in the tenth position and we're playing C while utilizing our D form out of the CAGED system. When we move to our C5 voicing, we're creating a melody as the voicing shifts downward. Then we go to the Dm chord using an Em form from the EDCAG system. In our last measure, we repeat the idea in measure two of dropping all four voicings downward. This concept is great for creating inversions and diversifying your rhythm guitar parts.
