The CAGED system: Major chords.

Use the CAGED system to play major chords in several positions.

(For those who want to go into more detail about the CAGED system, I am currently writing an e-book on the subject. In the meantime, check out my posts on major and minor arpeggios using the system.

Update!

 

Greetings people,
sorry for the lack of new content on this site of late. I realise I have been neglecting my administrative duties and I thank you for following me. You lot rock! There is new content in the work
s on this website, that will be useful for students and teachers of guitar, as well as similar instruments such as bass, ukulele and mandolin.
I am currently taking on new students, so if any one is interested in starting or improving on guitar, and feel that one to one lessons will benefit you, let me know. I can enter students for exams if they wish but there is no obligation to do so.
I am also working on a demo for my metal project, though when this will finally be ready I cannot say for certain. Soon, hopefully, but lessons are a priority. Thanks for your support and patience.

Much love, Ed Heron.

“The Coventry Carol”, in E minor

A Sixteenth Century carol, from the mystery play The Pageant of the Shearmen and Tailors, about the massacre of the innocents. Take note of the interesting harmonic effect called a Picardy third, where the minor third in the tonic chord moves up a semi-tone to make a major third at the end of each stanza.
