So if I understand correctly, the CAGED system is the idea of barring open scales of C, A, G, E, and D to give you 5 ways to play each major scale on the neck? It's bar chords in a schale form.

No, there are just 3 maj scales in the major scale (lol).
However it shows relative keys.

Cmaj Amin Gmaj Emin Dmin.
To know this you need to know the characteristic of each modalbox in the scale, which is Maj min min maj maj min dim. smile.gif

Actually yes, that is the idea here - different chord shapes equate to different scale boxes so you have several ways to play each scale.

Kjutte's comment above whilst correct is I think related to modes which we are not discussing here.
