“If there's one thing I wish I'd discovered earlier in my guitar playing career, it's the CAGED System! You see, like most players, I had no logical method for organising and understanding the guitar fretboard, which meant years of confusion and slow progress whilst I tried to figure it all out on my own...
Once I was able to apply the systematic approach to learning the fretboard which I show you in this book, I became quite literally a different player. Instead of stumbling around in the dark trying to find my way around the guitar ...I could focus on playing music and making my playing sound the way i wanted it to. It freed me up like you wouldn't believe!
That's why, I wanted to write The CAGED System for Guitar...
I've put a lot of thought into this book, and I believe that I've created an easy to use package which almost any player can use to see serious improvements in their guitar playing (practice is required of course!). You see, this book doesn't just give you information, most of which you can find anywhere - it gives you a step-by-step system to follow, packed with practical exercises, musical examples, and some of the best practice and 'speed learning' methods I've discovered along my guitar journey.
So, if you ever feel 'stuck' on the guitar like I did, or if you want to improve your fretboard knowledge even just a bit, I reckon that you'll find what you need in The CAGED System for Guitar.
So if YOU find your lack of fretboard knowledge holds you up
You find yourself losing your way when you try to improvise
You hit that 'wall' when you play and don't know where to go or which notes will work
You find yourself playing the same licks and ideas all the time (frustrating...)
You want a step-by-step, easy to use method for thoroughly improving your fretboard knowledge
You're sick of being stuck in the same little zone of the guitar neck
You want to boost your knowledge of the essential scales and modes we use on guitar and learn how to use them...
...then grab a copy of The CAGED System for Guitar and begin transforming your playing and guitar skills!
