Designed to motivate and inspire students, guitar sherpa's innovative learning systems employ a hands-on, contextual format. Students "play" their way through guitar sherpa curriculum rather than working through tedious examples and exercises. Brad carlton, truefire's educational director and top session player, presents caged cracked, a unique and highly effective system for fretboard navigation, chord selection and improvisation. The caged system goes well beyond alternate chord voicings by also serving as a springboard for comping, soloing and improvising in any key. You'll start off learning just five moveable chord forms and a system for quickly identifying roots and other strong tones. You'll then learn how to quickly see and overlay intervals, arpeggios, pentatonics and other scale forms - all of them also moveable to any key. Next, you'll get a grip on handy inversions of the chord forms to connect the dots between the forms and add texture to the harmony. Then the fun begins as you put your big bag of moveable chords, arpeggios and scale forms to work to comp, solo and improvise over any changes, in any key, in any fretboard position. You'll also learn how to pull out fills at will and instantly connect strong tones across even the most complicated changes to form seamless melodic lines and compositions.
