Watch the D Form: Major Scale online guitar lesson by Dave Celentano from CAGED Commander
The final scale pattern in CAGED is the 'D form'. For rock guitarists, this pattern may look familiar. This finger friendly pattern contains a couple of areas to observe - the high E and B string each contain the 'index/ring/pinkie' combination, while the D and G strings contain index/middle/pinkie. Also notice the lowest root note is positioned higher in this pattern than any of the previous. It's on the D string! Similar to the 'G form', the 'D form' barre chord could be a challenge. The objective here is to know where the chord tones reside in each scale pattern more so than actually being able to use the chord form in a song.
