For those of us learning the note locations on all the strings and up to the 12th fret these are the diagrams I made to help me not only with the note locations but the relating notes to form the triads along the fret board. Hope this helps. (making the diagrams really helped me also)

Wesley (and others),

I created an Excel file with CAGED forms and one of the worksheets I have is the major scale laid on top of each CAGED chord form.  I number each note in the major scale, so you can also create any triad you want anywhere on the neck using this overlay.  The attached file shows the scales laid out end to end on the fretboard using the standard five scale patterns over the five CAGED forms.  What I like about this approach is that you can make a triad using any of the chord forms (or the associated scale form on or even a scale form next to the chord you're playing). 

I reference both the major scale pattern number and the minor pattern number because I have found that some web sites refer to only the patterns in terms of the minor patterns while others refer to them in the major pattern numbering scheme.  Why they are different, I have not yet discovered (there are only 5 patterns and they work for major or minor, and other modes).  

I used these concepts to see how the triads on Pachabel's Canon with Spread Triads Live Stream file was created.

Well laid out chart. Nicely done. It combines the major scale, CAGED and Triads on 1 page. Thanks for sharing
