Hey awesome people, how are you today? It’s time for the 3rd position of the major scale. We’re going to learn all 5 scale shape / positions related to the CAGED system to be able to play around the entire fretboard.
3rd Position Major Scale
Once you’ve learned the 1st position and 2nd position of the major scale thoroughly you can safely continue to learn the 3rd position, also referred to as the C-shape position of the major scale. (See video lesson).
Below are the TABS and the video lesson where I explain the entire scale shape / position with tricks and tips to really nail this one. Make yourself a nice cup of coffee or a profound cup of tea and start developing some solid guitar habits. 👊
Have a great one!

Sure man, I’m glad you can learn some new things.
Keep up the practice! 😉👍
G major scale 1st position has a two octave ranges within the “Cage”. Exercised this by playing scale up to octave end, back down to root then increasing by one note and extending into the next octave. Continued scale incrementally by one note ending at second octave high note then reversing the scales back down to root of first octave.
2nd and 3rd position just require moving up and down the low and high E.
Creates a scale study that requires focus. A two cup of coffee focus. Haha
Thanks for the “notes” (especially) and tabs.
Rather than sliding down the low E work from 2nd position into the first position for the 2 octave exercise. Etc.
Have not had the second coffee yet. Haha

It’s important to get your coffee break the let the notes sink into your subconscious mind. 😄☕
