Very good point. As I tried to say before, no one single approach works well with every student.

CAGED is not so much a system or method, it is simply a fact. It's like the world atlas roadmap of the fretboard. There are other cool patterns and relationships, but caged is the underlying base.

The reason I'm such a cheerleader for caged it that when I decided to learn guitar, I made a decision that it wouldn't be worth doing unless I really understood how the guitar works, that is to say, not learning licks first but rather learning how to navigate from anywhere. Caged gave me this understanding.

I think you are right on this point. I guess the reason I find the 3nps scales more useful is the style I like to play. I guess it is just what tools you need for your particular style of playing. smile.gif

Yes indeed, it all depens on the style you want to play.

If shred is your choice, you're doing good learning 3nps scales. If you want to play of blues, you'd learn pentatonics first. CAGED is, although for me, a good way of finding chords for scales and vice versa, but there are other ways to learn theory. If you learned scales, you will see all methods overlap, and even scales overlap and everything fits perfectly. In order to get there however, you'll need to try diffrent things, but in the end, you'll see that it comes down to the same thing.

Everybody has to find their own way around the guitar, I am a chaotic learning, meaning I learn a bit of everything I see, and focus more on the stuff I really like to play. If you don't give up, you'll get there. In your own way wink.gif
