Brad Carlton's CAGED Dominant is the sequel to his acclaimed "breakthrough" CAGED Cracked 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.
CAGED Cracked and CAGED Dominant gives players a much broader perspective of the fretboard and provide a significantly wider selection of chord choices and positions for any given tune.
Carlton unlocks the improvisational firepower of these essential fretboard systems for not only rhythm work but fills, solos and melodies as well.
Carlton will step through each of the 5 Dominant 7th forms up and down the neck; C7 Form, A7 Form, G7 Form, E7 Form and the D7 Form. You'll learn how to easily and quickly identify roots and other strong tones and all of the associated arpeggios, intervals, pentatonic scales and other scale forms for each of the forms - all of them also moveable to any key. You'll also learn handy inversions of the chord forms to connect the dots between the forms and add texture to the harmony.
Now the fun begins as you put your big bag of moveable chords, arpeggios and scale forms to work to comp and improvise solos over any changes, in virtually any fretboard position. Carlton includes a lengthy series of vamps and practice rhythm tracks to illustrate the improvisational firepower of the system.
You'll learn how to pull out fills at will and instantly connect strong tones across even the most complicated changes to form seamless melodic lines and compositions.
You'll also explore 7 Add b3 Arpeggios, chromatic connections of chord tones, applying the Blues scale, 13 arpeggios, Mixolydian overlays, Major Pent Add b3 and how to "soften" the Blues scale.
The ultimate "rut-buster" for intermediate and advanced players alike, CAGED Cracked and CAGED Dominant will quickly transform every aspect of your playing and understanding of the fretboard.
