The 3 note per string way of playing scales I've found to be an amazing system that just seems to be a gift that keeps on giving. It's really more than just for shredding. Granted, the CAGED box...

A lot of variables here. It sounds like you're playing an electric. If I were to venture one guess, I'd have to say you're putting a lot of tension into your playing from the sound of it.
