Do you ever wonder how all those great guitar players we all admire find their way around the guitar neck? There are almost as many answers to that question as there are players. One of the best methods of describing how the guitar neck works in regular tuning is the "Caged System" and how the main 5 chord shapes translate into eventually (and I do mean eventually) knowing the guitar neck. This workshop will be a very basic beginning to that journey.

Don has been around the folk club for about 11 years and has been playing songs on the guitar for about 40 years. For the past 7 years, he has been learning to actually PLAY the guitar (through private lessons), and learning guitar theory along with the "caged system".
