Hi Ursin
Good Video, been working on the CAGED system for about 3 months. As usual been trying to substitute "homemade runs" from the C Shape Major scale with the D shape Major Pentatonics instead of playing the actual major chords. So the I am finding the C shape very valuable and raking the D minor 7ths into the F Major then of to a D shape G Major then of to a A Shape G Major or G Minor, a frequent occurrence with a down rake strum up rake strum, down strum rake but I don't know if that is the best use for the scales since the chords are a mix of the minors and majors

It's good to create and work on ideas. Often we get stuck in ruts just working on the scales to a metronome but this is all meant to help you CREATE and play ideas, licks, phrases, improv, etc. More later. Thanks

Hey Ursin,
I never understood the actual reasoning behind why one might want to tune to Eb. Since you do (you sounded like Ab major to me), can I ask what your reasoning behind this was? Is it because you cover or perform your own stuff written in a key that's easier to play Eb-tuning? To hit just a single extra note? To better play in a singers preferred key(s); why is it easier? For better tone?

Also, thanks for another video. When you decide your students are getting pretty comfortable with the major scale shapes and moving between them, what do you typically ask them to do as a next step with that scale? Do you give them particular progressions and tell them to experience the different sounds the (modes of the) scale can make over different changes (Goodrick style)? How would you teach this in a rock setting? Or would you tell such a student switch to learning a new scale instead?

Ursin, awesome, thanks for the answer.

Listening to SRV about 20 years ago got me off the couch to get a job so that I could buy my first guitar and the Texas Flood tab book. So yeah, like millions of others, that Eb sound grabs me too.

With respect to your scale advice, I believe I'm on the right track and will keep chugging (beers too).

Bro, we have a live tiger on campus! C'mon dude!!! I will say that the Florida fans are some of the better fans in the SEC. Classy when you go over to The Swamp. Can't say that about LSU. Sometimes we ACT A FOOL!!!!! Alabama fans are the worst. Seriously. They believe they have won, like, 27 National Championships. You can't talk to these people. More on that later. I'm ready for football season.

I'm a hardcore Dolphins fan too so Alabama is doubly sh!tty to me due to Nick Saban, who basically screwed the Phins a few seasons back. Can't wait for the season to start. The Gators are coming to me this year when they play the Hurricanes. I have to give the Canes crowd the worst fans ever award. Living in S. Florida during their 90s heyday was just unbearable. YouTube some of the ESPN 30 for 30 on the Canes if you don't remember how in-your-face they were. But yeah, F the Tide.

I'm working on the CAGED system, I've never tried learning scales before so this may be a daft question.... Starting position 1 is the G major, moving up to position 2, is that still G major but just played further up the neck?.... Guess by my question I'm trying to understand what the connection is between root notes and shapes..

Yes. The CAGED system as outlined in Pebber's pdf file is in the key of G major. You should be able to easily transpose it to whichever key you choose by moving the root note.

Early Van Halen is tuned to Eb. According to Guthrie Govan it was because Eddie would tune off of the bass player before they had a keyboardist.


If you are not thinking about the guitar every 30 seconds then you are not concentrating.

this is most likely a very dumm question.
All the major scale shapes going through from the Caged system through to the 12 position system(with the interval replacement ecxeption on the 12 position). Scince they all start on a different intervals of the major scale, If I move the different shapes and play them in one place, say the 3rd fret, do those positions then start to form the major scale modes at the 3rd fret?

Hey uderoche,

Is this video still available to see or did you take it down? Maybe my browser is giving me problems again but I can't seem to play it.

I believe I took it down. I usually only leave videos up for about a month.
