Iain Scott looks at more CAGED sys­tem ideas (Mi­nor chords) in this month’s Chord Camp.

Pick­ing up from last is­sue’s in­stal­ment where we looked at ma­jor CAGED chords along the length of the fret­board, in this les­son let’s ex­am­ine the mi­nor ver­sions. We will be us­ing these cre­atively as ‘float­ing shapes’ along the fret­board, then us­ing any mu­si­cally rel­e­vant open strings to sup­port the mi­nor chord at its new po­si­tion. Mi­nor tri­ads are very use­ful, not only as mi­nor chords, but also when they’re played over dif­fer­ent root notes, where they can cre­ate a ma­jor or al­tered chord. Many great bands have used this con­cept. Let’s take a deeper look to sort out the mys­tery.
