Mastering the CAGED System

Mastering the CAGED System

New

beginner · Theory
Tommy Gerlach

I often tell my students, the more you learn on the guitar, the more fun the guitar is to play. As a guitarist, being able to pick up the instrument and play freely, anywhere on the neck, is one of the most joyous things in my life. In this course, I want to teach you how to do just that. Make the guitar more fun and help it bring joy to your life. We will dive into understanding the CAGED system, and along the way, dive into basic theory. The goal is to train you to think like a pro by establishing basic theory concepts like, where do scales come from? How do I know what notes are in what chord? How do I target notes in a solo? How do I solo or compose in any key? How do I know what key a song is in? How can I learn a song or lick by ear? Answering all of these questions will allow you to flow freely around the instrument and sound more like an experienced pro.

This class will dig into making melodies utilizing triads, scales, and chords. Guitarists get stuck playing fills and chords versus melodies that draw people in. We will investigate how to make melodies, comp (play rhythm) and solo using triads, pentatonic scales, and other color tones. At the end of this class, you will be a stronger improvisor and rhythm guitar player. We will look at how to do more with the chords you know and more with the scales you know.

Molly is absolutely amazing. The way she breaks things down so you can understand how to play is incredible. She encourages questions to help you along in your journey. I would encourage everyone to take her class. You will be better no matter what.

Chord Creation

Arianna's class is amazing. Every class was extremely well thought out, always engaging, and had great cohesion of concepts throughout every class. It’s more reminiscent of a Music Conservatory Masterclass than your typical basic online class!
