The CAGED method is especially good for quickly learning many chord forms all over the neck. The key is to relate all forms with the same name to each other.
For instance, there is a Form A shape for every type of chord (Major, Minor, Major 7th, Dominant 7th etc..), and every single one of those Form A chord types share the exact same root note.
In the case of Form A that root note is on the 5th String, so you should be able to build any chord type off of whatever 5th string note that you want to be the root of the chord.
Check out the other studies using the CAGED method here at guitarlessons365.com. There are lessons were we take every seventh chord type and arrange it in the CAGED format as well, all still working off the same root notes. Just do a search on seventh chords and you will find them.
Remember, all Form A's go together, and all Form G's go together and so forth. You will see that all of the chord types are right on top of each other making them much easier to organize and memorize.
