I just thought I'd give a beginners lesson in movable chords, here underneath I made a picture representing the neck of the guitar, with all the possible ways you can play an F-major chord, you can also think of it as being an F major scale, but only with the 1,3,5 notes, that directly build up the F-major chord,

Now when you start with the "normal" F-major, note that the chordshape next to it is a D-shape, In other words, when you move up the D-major chord three frets, it's also an F-major, (C-shape five frets and so on). Try to recognise these seven basic chord-shapes, wich always are next to each-other, in every key and mode, even when you use a minor scale (only the name of the root-note changes)

This "grid can be moved up and down the neck, to get other chords, but the whole pattern doesn't change. This is in fact also the "CAGED"-system, but with an additional F - and B shape, So in fact it should be the CBAGFED- system :)

Let me know if this has been helpfull to you,

Keep on picking!

OK, it doesn't really work with all different modes. That would require some addotional notes, and some to be left out. But when you would use a pentatonic scale it would work for minor scales as well. Also note in an F major chord are the same notes as in its relative D-minor chord, but with an additional note D (wich would be the rootnote) and the note C left out.
