Can you add a link to something that describes what the CAGED method is? – Adam Lear Jan 14 '11 at 1:12

I've been learning the CAGED System from Justin Sandercoe's website.

He begins with origin of the system and steps through each chord shape & it's notes up the length of the fretboard. He's even got nice diagrams and worksheet for reference...

He offers the information up for free but donate if you can. It's quality stuff.

Justin's stuff is great - his song lessons are great, he's a good person, a good player, and a good teacher. It's a real skill to be able to engage with students you never meet, and he's got it. – gomad Jan 28 '11 at 17:25

I recommend checking out Fretboard Logic SE which uses the CAGED method. I found the author's approach to be straight-forward and easy to understand.
