how do you like to play the C form barred? Do you play all the strings, or just some of them?

thanks - I often take the easy way out and play only the top 3 strings (hey, Bobby does it!). In that case the C and D form are the same...

Question here. I understand the basic concept of the CAGED system. What throws me off, however, is that the "D" chord shape is really just a simplified form of the "C" shape moved up two frets. I guess we need the "D" shape in the sequence to maintain the flow up the fretboard, but that is a stumbling block for me.

Another question: The five scale patterns you listed in another thread are based on the same sequence of CAGED chords, right? I think I'm starting to see the sense of all this.
