This website is devoted to a new player friendly guitar method called CAGED octaves

The CAGED octaves method represents the next evolutionary step forwards for the standard CAGED guitar method. The application of the principles presented here will allow systematic memorisation and instantaneous recall of scales, chords and arpeggios which are required for improvisation and song writing.

The CAGED octaves method uses five octave shapes (with two shapes containing double octaves):-

  • 5Cm2 - Cm chord shape with root notes on string numbers 5 and 2

  • 5Am3 - Am chord shape with root notes on string numbers 5 and 3

  • 6Gm3Gm1 - Gm chord shape with root notes on string numbers 6, 3 and 1

      • 6Gm3 - Gm partial chord shape with root notes on string numbers 6 and 3
      • 3Gm1 - Gm partial chord shape with root notes on string numbers 3 and 1

  • 6Em4Em1 - Em chord shape with root notes on string numbers 6, 4 and 1

      • 6Em4 - Em partial chord shape with root notes on string numbers 6 and 4
      • 4Em1 - Em partial chord shape with root notes on string numbers 4 and 1

  • 4Dm2 - Dm chord shape with root notes on string numbers 4 and 2

Using these five octave shapes (rather than the cumbersome minor chord shapes employed under the standard CAGED guitar system) results in the ultimate player friendly memorisation system for the guitar fingerboard available today.

Information is presented as YouTube videos, Adobe pdf documents and Guitar Pro 5 tabalature.
