In our quest for mastery over the fingerboard and to be able to create long, flowing jazz lines flowing between shapes so we are not stuck in position, here is a diagram of all the 7 scale shapes I use.
The CAGED system seems to miss 2, thus missing out a mountain of possibilities.
As a reference system, where the 1st finger is on the 6th string you can call each position terms such as… first finger on 1st fret – F Ionian or position 1, or the 1st finger on 3rd fret – G Dorian or position 2…. etc..
The red notes are the extra notes added to ensure 3 notes per string to develop the twisting, turning, spiralling lines.
