Now we’re taking the chord shapes and adding full scale shapes to them. Again, we’re using the CAGED chord shapes to see these scales all over the neck. These scales are going to be used extensively in a wide variety of genre’s. It’s very important to start and end on the root note of the chord! Also, the fingerings are up for interpretation, so use experiment with different fingers if you wish.


To connect the shapes:

Cm Shape’s 4th finger is A Shape’s 1st finger

Am Shape’s 3rd and 4th finger is Gm Shape’s 1st finger barred

Gm Shape’s 4th finger is Em Shape’s 1st finger

Em Shape’s 4th finger is Dm Shape’s 1st finger

Dm Shape’s 3rd and 4th finger is Cm Shape’s 1st and 2nd fingers
