is the CAGED system a good way to learn on guitar?
also could someone give me an idea of how it works.
It's basically (from what I remember) a system used to memorize where notes are on the guitar. It has five different chord shapes (C, A, G, E, and D, hence the name) for each key. Frankly, I didn't gain much from it. I found writing down scales much more beneficial in memorizing the fretboard. It might work for you though.
