So have you ever wondered how the great solo players could come up with the most incredible solos?
You’re lucky cause well, the theory behind it it is rather simple actually. The trick we want to introduce to you within the next posts is the CAGED system. A powerful tool to empower you to play chords and solos wherever you want along the fretboard.
The pentatonic pattern above is the pattern number one, and as the name CAGED implies, it is based on the shape of a C major chord. The numbers refer to the fingers that are playing the individual strings and frets.
If you take a closer look, you can easily spot the shape of the C major in this pattern, and whenever you are playing it, you can find suiting notes for your major key song to improvise within your songs.
