Im studyin this book by troy stetina - The Ultimate scale book. its got all the scales.

He given on some chords of the same key as the scale in different positions. He say take reference from these anchor chords to help you find the right box.

I didnt quite get that? Wht does he mean?

I know where the boxes are, Im learning the scale?

Plz help.

Probably he's talked about the CAGED method or something like that.

Take a look at the chord shape, then take a look at the shape of the scale he
associates with the chord. Doesn't the chord shape fit into the scale pattern?
That's what he means by anchoring chords I'm sure.
Dude I din get u either. Wht is the CAGED method? im unaware........

sigh.

He doesn't explain this in the book!? I doubt I could do better here.

C = C Chord, A = A Chord, G ..., E..., D ....

A picture of the C chord is some dots (notes) on a fret diagram
A picture of the C "scale shape finger position" is a bunch of dots on a fret diagram

If you OVERLAY a picture of those chord shapes, onto a picture of the scale
shapes, all the dots of the chord will match a dot in the scale.
Yea they do. N why wudnt they, chords are formed from the scale!!!!

Whts his point? Why do I need to memorize those chords?

It is so that when play that chord shape you will know what finger position
of the scale to use at the same fret position.

Suppose you like an A Major chord -- you can play the A major chord in different
positions on the neck. Each position has a different shape -- You can play an A
major CHORD, with a "C SHAPE" or an "A SHAPE" or a "G SHAPE" or an "E SHAPE"
or a "D SHAPE" up and down the neck.

If you were playing an A Major chord at the 5th fret, that would be using the
"E SHAPE" barre chord. Then, all you would need to know is the "E SHAPE"
scale form, start it on the 5th fret and you have the notes of the A Major scale.
