Instead I rely on my 1st 2nd and 4th finger on where I want to start the scale. In actual playing of the music, the mode, melody, chords, inversions, flatten notes, tempo and others things in there is in my mind. The pattern and CAGED system all disappear but noticed as you play along.
I have found a good resonance in this answer to what I might be looking for at this point of time. I am a beginner classical guitar student and I am finding it uncomfortable to go ahead without 'the fundamentals'.

I think it won't hurt to teach guitar students at least the most fundamentals of harmony on the guitar. It's not rocket science, their brains won't blow up.wianno wrote:Now I'll contradict what I just said by preaching the need for classical guitarists to begin to memorize chord patterns at an early stage of development. The idea of movable chord patterns, say as presented by Bill Edwards in his Fretboard Logic publication, is in my opinion very important to the student guitarist, not only for execution but also for learning harmony. What are your thoughts about this?
By fundamentals I mean scales without open notes so that we can transpose them very easily. Basically 2 or 3 fingering patterns allow us to play a scale in any key in any position of the fretboard with any number of octaves. (Including obviously the Segovia scales)
Intervals. Thirds, Sixths and fifths. Then scales in those intervals.
Finally, how to build triads and then the "Gran Chord" as Sor calls it, which are the chord shapes that we recognize. This immediately render useless every single chord chart.
This is the very least.
