In this BLOGoZON we take a look at the C major blues scale box shapes and join them all together to form one long CAGED4BASS chain.

The diagram that follows shows all five of the CAGED4BASS shapes for use with the
box shapes for a 4-string bass tuned to EADG :-

As always a more long term solution to fretboard navigation is to see scales as INTERVAL shapes rather than note names - as these are universal to all scales, arpeggios and chords rather than specific to one particular root note - with this in mind the intervals for the C major-minor arpeggio are detailed below in the
CAGED4BASS manner:-

CAGED4BASS style for Low E tuning.

Once the individual box shapes have been assimilated all five shapes should be linked together and played in one continuous exercise (with the first shape - 3C* - being repeated at the 12th fret).

The video shown to the right demonstrates the CAGED4BASS chain-linked sequence for the C major -minor arpeggio box shapes.
