Ernie Hawkins continues his detailed exploration of the C-A-G-E-D Guitar System, using his long experience in country blues fingerpicking as the springboard for this lesson. You'll start by learning to play the standard 12-bar blues chord progression in every position and in every key - the heart of the C-A-G-E-D concept.

As in his previous video series, Ernie patiently and thoroughly provides drills, exercises, practice tips and the basic theory necessary to help you understand the principles behind this important system. You'll see how licks can be transposed from one key to another; how to link chords with harmonized passing tones; how major and minor arpeggios help you find notes everywhere on the neck; and how all the notes, intervals and chords work together to form a complete musical picture.

Whether you're playing blues, folk, jazz or rock, this "magic key" to the fingerboard will give you the security and confidence to branch out into any musical genre that interests you.

Arpeggios

Best lesson I've seen on Arpeggios. Simple 1-3-5, just how important they play into learning. I was a bit disappoint regarding the angle the guitar was shot, wish it was shot straight on instead.
