Playing guitar scales in one position. Recommended

In the last lesson you were asked to construct four different major keys. The four keys you were asked to construct are the keys of C major, G major, D major and A major. I mentioned that once you constructed these major keys, we would learn 4 basic fingering patterns to play each of these major keys in one position. We will now call this position the II position. Before we play these scales, we need to learn a little about the four different fingering patterns. The patterns will be illustrated as Type 1, Type 2, Type 3 and Type 4. Each of these patterns will start on a different finger. But each of these patterns will be played in this II position. Meaning, you will now play C, G, D and A major in one position, but use 4 different fingering patterns. The first position will be called the Type 1 position and will be explained below.
