    Can the chords in the caged system be mugged instead of understanding. Because I am finding it too confusing after so many videos on it. If it is about recognising the chords on different positions on a fret board then I think mugging will do the trick instead of trying to understand them. I got the basic concept but I am unable to theoretically apply them.
