    CAGED is a great system. I watched and rewatch it and still learn from it. It's a great class.

    I went over the course and it helped me understanding what I was also learning from my guitar teacher locally. I recommend it for someone that wants to learn how the chords and caged system works as it helped with my knowledge of the fret board and chords tremendously

    For some reason the CAGED system was very confusing for me even trying to learn and understand through multiple sources. Steve's CAGED system course seemed to bring it all together for me. Now it seems so simple, I don't know how it could have been so confusing to me.

    Steve's way of teaching the CAGED System is methodical, easy to understand, and delivered in his own eloquent style. After you grasp the concepts it's Practice, Practice, Practice!

    This course was very good. I learned a lot and this really helped me move further up the fretboard and helped with different sounding chords. Real cool.

    I learned CAGED basics from a book I purchased on the Internet, but I learned how to use it in CAGED Made Simple. In fact, I have used what Steve taught me in this course more than any other course I've purchased--and I've purchased quite a few.

    Like all of Steve's courses, the instruction was excellent. It was clear and easy to understand. Even if you don't get it the first time. He reminds and encourages you to watch as many times as necessary till you get it. And if you don't understand anything get a hold of him. Which is a testament to his dedication to teaching us. I recommend this coarse to anyone that is interested in learning the Caged System. Peace

    I knew a bit about the CAGED system already, but Steve's approach to teaching it placed the whole thing in a much broader, more easily understood and more relevant context. Excellent!

    Caged is an AWESOME course I've only started to learn to play the guitar for about 2 years now and this course is helping me with my biggest obstacle learning 5 and 6 string barre chords. Thanks Steve Dan and Guitar zoom

    This understanding really opened up the fret board for me both in chords and scales. I would say that this is the most important thing to know for playing guitar and becoming more creative. I spend way less time playing “cowboy” chords and more time up the neck with more interesting chords and licks. Definitely worth the money and time!

    I think this course is excellent. I've been playing for many years and had no idea what I didn't know. Steve's Video's have opened up a new life for me playing Guitar. The fingerboard makes sense now . Now I'm out of my Rut thanks Steve and Dan.

    Thank you, I play as a hobbyist and find that just by listening and watching Steve my playing gets better, I have a much deeper understanding on how to connect things and make it all more musical, just need to get my pesky fingers to do what my brain wants! Again thanks for the great tuition and courses.

    The information provided was extremely helpful and Steve made the concept and utilization easy to understand. My only problem is trying to follow Steve's hands sometimes. Otherwise, perfecto.

    This is my go to course when I’m feeling lostt working on theory or blues or whatever I’m doing I break this course out. Steve’s path to learning the CAGED system is just that simple which helps me in my other learning. I’ll bet I watch it 3-4 times a year just to stay grounded.

    I've studied other courses on CAGED and found this one to be good for a beginner who knows little to nothing about it. This course is a good start for anyone wanting to study the CAGED system. He lays it out nicely and provides some good direction for soloing over chord changes.

    I have purchased many course of Steve. CAGED Made Simple is one of the excellent method from Steve, as usual. It helps to play across the fretboard. Thank you Steve.

    CAGED is a good system and course for beginners. I bought the course and found out I knew it already, but it never hurts to review basics.
    I'm just trying to learn to play better after many years of stagnating in my own juices. Guitarzoom has freed me from that.

    Steve is a great teacher, he breaks the caged system down, into bite size chucks, so you can really understand how the caged system works. He also doesn't pressure you to learn it just his way, he encourages you to explore and create your own feel. Since I started late in life you my journey with guitar. I have found Steve and Dan to be inspirational. My playing has improved so much, that even my wife demands, I leave the door open to my guitar room so she can listen to me practice.
    Thanks Steve. You truly are amazing.

    I’ve always considered myself a medioc lead player, but not too bad on rhythm. This course, amongst all the others I have from GZ have opened new doors of everything with my guitar playing. I’ve made that step from mediocre to not bad! At guitar playing that is.

    This course can be a real building block for your advancement. With Steve's teaching I caught on quickly to what the CAGED system can do for you, but I will spend many, many hours to really master it. The payoff is more fluid chord chasing and expanding your solos beyond simple scales--while conquering the whole fretboard. Great examples and jam tracks to work with. I'll be busy for weeks! 🙂

    This course delivers as promised. For the first time, I could see what all the fuss about the CAGED system was about, and how it works to give you so much more flexibility in where and how you play. Steve's introduction to the system is an illuminating and useful way to start exploring the options it offers. Thank you Steve!

    I thought the presentation of the CAGED system was thorough and well presented. However, Steve mentions abbreviated barre chords but really doesn't show how to finger them. I have a difficult time doing barre chords for the G, C and D with my last 3 fingers and it would be helpful to see some other ways of playing them.

    I've just started studying the CAGED course and complete Module 1. Now I need to work on the next 2. As always, Steve Stine makes learning easy with his clear explanation and patience with the students. I expect to finally start to play away from the first position.
