Wolf Marshalls GUIDE TO C-A-G-E-D

The C-A-G-E-D System is a useful method for organizing all styles of music on the guitar. It is based on five essential guitar chord
forms found in the first position: C, A, G, E and D.
The C-A-G-E-D System provides a simple way of grouping melodies with their related chord shapes. That is useful for understanding
the physical structure of guitar harmony, hearing notetochord relationships, and using chords and licks purposefully in your music.
