    Forum post by eric glenn. Topic: CAGED and 3 NPS system

    Thanks for your responses guys. Alot of info to take in. I will continue to review what you've told me and practice hard. Guess the best thing is to practice the 5 pos scale for all the maj chords. Once comfortable, begin to shift my attention to the 7 pos scale(3NPS). Wow, gutiarist sure have alot to learn to be proficent. Makes me appreciate what you guys do. Thanks again.......

  • CAGED and 3 NPS systemDateTue Sep 09, 2014 6:01 pm

    Hey guys, so after watching Pebber's video lesson for mapping out the C major scale along with the scale tones on the fret board, I'm beginning to understand how to view the CAGED and 3 notes per string scale. I do understand that these are a beginners format for the scale, but I do have questions. Once I've mapped out the these scales I assume I need to practice them on the guitar and get use to where the positions are. When looking at the CAGED system, even though the shape I'm playing is that of an A chord, it's still a C Major this correct? The purpose is to find different places along the fret board to play a C Major chord? So what is the purpose of moving onto the 3 NPS method? Please enlighten me. The answers are probably staring me in the face, but I am getting a little overwhelmed. I practice a lot of the exercises on the guitar and have been writing a lot of the C major scale out on the blank fret board. Just need some clarification to be sure I am looking at all of this from the correct perspective.

    Hi guys, New to the Guitar. Signed up as a memeber 2 weeks ago. Studying all the theroy classes on this site as well as youtube. I have the Major Scale steps down pat, know all the strings and notes from open and along the fret board. My practice consist of the scalpel picking exercise on each string and also while playing the A minor Pentatonic scale. I recit the Chromatic scale as I progress along each string a few times. Also, I learned the A,D and E major chords (self researched) and practice those. Currently, much of Pebbers info on the beginners lessons is Therory, which is great. However his daily practice video for beginners was doing things I hadn't seen yet (A minor Pentatonic scale etc...) Am I expected to research this info myself or have I just not progressed enough through the lessons? In other words is there a point in which Pebber will review chords, transitions from chord to chord, Major and Minor pentatonic scales..etc... Perhaps I'm being impatient. I practice atleast 2 1hour sessions a day and another hour on the computer. Any words of wisdom for an absolute beginner? Thanks
